Interview with the heroine from Lady Anne’s Quest by Susan Page Davis:

1. Lady Anne Stone, tell me the most interesting thing about you.

I’m from England, and I’ve determined to find my uncle out here in Oregon Territory. He’s got to be here somewhere. Have you seen a tall, blond man with blue eyes and a British accent?

2.  What do you do for fun?

A year ago I’d have said riding. I used to love it. But I’ve done it so much lately—riding all over this wilderness—that I think I’d like to sit somewhere for a long time and knit.

3.  What do you put off doing because you dread it?

Writing to my family’s solicitor in London. I should give him an update, but I hate to admit that I haven’t found Uncle David yet. When I do, Mr. Conrad will be the first to hear from me!

4.  What are you afraid of most in life?

Being left all alone. I’ve lost nearly all my loved ones. I can’t bear to think that Uncle David may be gone too. Of course, I have dear friends who’ve been helping me, but I hope this branch of the Stone family doesn’t end here.

5.  What do you want out of life?

Right now, more than anything, I want to find Uncle David—the real Uncle David—and tell him that he simply must go back to England. After that, a hot bath please.

6.  What is the most important thing to you?

Faith, honor, and integrity. If my father is looking down from heaven, I hope he is proud of me.

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

I adore it. I absolutely love the Bronte sisters’ novels.

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

I would have been less timid as a girl and more adventurous. I’d have tried to learn practical skills. If I’d done that, the wagon train trip and this trek through the forests of Oregon would have been much easier, I’m sure.

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

Unless you count my borrowed horse, alas, no. Someday, when I am settled again, perhaps I shall acquire a cat.

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

I’d go back to the day Uncle David decided to leave England and beg him not to go. I’m sure if he’d realized what heartache he would cause his family, he’d have stayed where he belonged—at Stoneford.
