Interview with the heroine from Love Finds You in Annapolis, Maryland by Roseanna White:

Lark, tell me the most interesting thing about you.

Oh my, I fear there isn’t much to tell. I’m a bit too bookish and tend to fade into the wallpaper—I am nothing beside my beautiful sister or cousin. Prithee, forgive such a non-answer!

What do you do for fun?

I enjoy little more than settling in with a good tale of adventure!

What do you put off doing because you dread it?

I tend to procrastinate when it comes to bringing up subjects that will result in confrontation. ’Tisn’t that I refuse to argue, mind you, when a subject demands it—but I shy away from it whenever I may.

What are you afraid of most in life?

Spending it alone, as the spinster sister of my well-loved brother. Or worse, spending it alone at the side of the one who should love me above all—but never will.

What do you want out of life?

To find my place, my purpose. Sometimes I fear it shall never be clear.

What is the most important thing to you?

I have always valued family above all . . . and yet recently, I have come to cherish liberty equally—that elusive thing my brother fought for in the Revolution, but which seems so hard to hold.

Do you read? If so, what is your favorite type of book to read?

Oh, yes! I am all the time sneaking off with one of my favorite books. I read anything I can find, be it sermons or poetry or treatises, but my absolute favorite are books with an adventure within the pages. Don Quixote ranks at the fore of my list.

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

I would be more. More beautiful, more spirited, more determined, more devout. Just more.

Do you have a pet? If so, what is it and why that pet?

We have animals aplenty on our plantation outside Williamsburg, but none have ever been permitted to be pets—well, unless one counts my father’s and brother’s horses, but I haven’t a mount that is solely mine, I’m afraid. And we’ve no dogs or cats at Endover. Perhaps someday, though, I shall demand such a creature to keep me company. That would surely help the long days pass by the more quickly!

If you could travel back in time, where would you go and why?

Oh, I wouldn’t travel far—just back a few decades to the days when the pirates roamed the seas more freely. I should greatly like a ship, a cutlass, a pistol—and the gumption to demand my own adventure. Alas, I think I shall have to settle for those novels.
