Excerpt

e yet. Is there any one in Hanover whom you think worthy of you?" Mrs. Meredith asked, just as a footstep was heard, and the rector of St. Mark's came round the rock where they were sitting.

He had called at the farmhouse, bringing the letter, and with it a book of poetry, of which Anna had asked the loan.

Taking advantage of her guest's absence, Grandma Humphreys had gone to a neighbor's after a recipe for making a certain kind of cake of which Mrs. Meredith was very fond, and only Esther, the servant, and Valencia, the smart waiting maid, without whom Mrs. Meredith never traveled, were left in charge.

"Down in the Glen with Mrs. Meredith. Will you be pleased to wait while I call them?" Esther said, in reply to the rector's inquiries for Miss Ruthven.

"No, I will find them myself," Mr. Leighton rejoined. Then, as he thought how impossible it would be to give the letter to Anna in the presence of her aunt, he slipped it into the book which he bade Esther take to Miss Ruthven's room

WJ Lundy
As a still-serving military veteran, WJ Lundy has over 15 years of combined service with the Army and Navy in Europe, the Balkans and Southwest Asia. He is also the author of the very successful WTF series, in which Lundy applies his military experience to paint action-packed, realistic scenes in a post-apocalyptic world where zombies roam the lands. Today, Lundy chats with us about his Escape omnibus, how he wrote his first novel in a notebook in Afghanistan and why his zombies are scarier than most.
