The Last Heiress


Interview with the hero from The Last Heiress by Mary Ellis:

1. Nathaniel Cooper, tell me the most interesting thing about you.

I walked across the entire state of North Carolina to the coastal town of Wilmington to begin a new life during the Civil War.

2. What do you do for fun?

I take the beach road out of town to the seacoast. I love to watch the vast, blue sea and dream of sailing one day.

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

I dread meeting the family of the woman I love. I fear they will find me unworthy of her.

4. What are you afraid of most in life?

That I won’t be there when those I love need me most.

5. What do you want out of life?

I want to leave the bustling city, find a plot of land to build a cottage, and buy a fishing trawler. Maybe God will send me a woman who could be happy as a fisherman’s wife.

6. What is the most important thing to you?

That we live each day by God’s law, not by the laws set down by man.

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

I read all kinds of books, but I love to read the new poets and transcendentalists of Concord, MA, such as Alcott, Thoreau, and Hawthorne. I don’t always agree with them, but it does give you something to think about.

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

That I would not jump to conclusions based solely on a man’s clothing, background, or bank account.

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

As a shopkeeper living in the city and sleeping in a rented loft, I have no pet. But I would love to provide pets of every sort for my children someday.

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

I would return to the mountains of my childhood in western Carolina. I would love to change how life turned out for my parents.
