Hey Everyone!! :-)
Please welcome Rave Reviews Book Club's Spotlight Author, Nancy Bell and her character Gwin Scawena Cornish Piskie from her book Go Gently!! :-)
Greetings, children of Adam and Eve. *Gwin doffs his pointy hat and bows* I’ve been asked to share a tiny bit about meself, so I have. I am Gwin Scawen, my names means White Elder in old Cornish. I have known Laurel’s Gramma Bella since she was a young thing and running from that bounder Daniel Treliving. *stops to shake his head* Now that was a right mess, so it was. But, that is for another day. I was instrumental, so I was, in getting Laurel and Vear Du, the Selkie together. Vear Du means Big Black in old Cornish. Vear and me have been mates for many long years. At first I didn’t realize he was Laurel’s grandfather, can you imagine that? I was fair blown away when I soused that out. Oh my, what a mess. The Selkie didn’t even know he had a half mortal son, let alone a granddaughter. What a treat to see the Selkie at a loss for a change. Quite conceited his kind can be at times, if you know what I mean. Anyways, back to me, Gwin Scawen. I am a full blooded Cornish Piskie, that’s me. Laurel’s friend, Aisling, is my very favorite human mortal. I watch over her and keep her safe. When it pleases me, I help out her and her friends if they get into trouble. It was great fun when me and me mates put the run on the bleeder Daniel Treliving. He’ll not bother that young Gort anymore, you mark my words. Oh, dear, they say I’ve rambled on too long. I must be off now. So nice to make your acquaintance, so it was. *bows again and steps sideways and disappears*
Laurel Rowan is determined to find her estranged grandmother. She wants answers to some questions that arose after her visit to Cornwall. Laurel needs to know why her father is angry with Gramma Bella. Arriving in the hamlet of Bragg Creek, Alberta, Laurel is disappointed to find Gramma Bella has gone to England. A Christmas visit to her friends in Cornwall seems like a good idea, after all that’s where all the questions started. What she finds there is both exciting and disturbing. Laurel and her friends embark on another adventure over the windswept moors and down the narrow winding streets of Cornish villages. The biggest question is: Where is Gramma Bella and what does Vear Du know about it?
