#FindOutFriday Answers 19

Wow, I cannot believe I am seeing everything bloom. I am also excited about the upcoming release of Revolution. Soon, #FindOutFriday will be filled with references from that book. I cannot wait to share that with you! For now, I have some referencing...

  1. Gunpowder - Other than the Gunpowder Plot of 1605, many references to the use of gunpowder in the 16th and 17th centuries were concerning burnings. If someone paid enough, gunpowder would be attached to a prisoner to hasten the end. It was supposed to help prepare them from the agonies of the fire. In Through the Meadow, this was talked about in an instance, where accused witches were burnt. This would not be the only time...

  2. British Isles/Ireland - The interchangeable wars and governments that ruled the British Isles (Britain, Ireland, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland) were my basis for Klenard and Tommel. There was one land, two kingdoms, and one king to rule them all ultimately. Liberation was generally in the hands of the government and not one monarch, like Nora dealt with in The Circle is Broken. In real life, I believe it's an act of Parliament and votes from the people.

  3. Frances Walsingham - A spy in the first Elizabethan England (16th century), Walsingham was the inspiration for Jerry the Elmwood in the first three books. Skilled in espionage, Walsingham, much like Jerry, protected his mistress and uncovered several plots. The two characters also shared the complete faith their mistresses held for them. Death might have been their relief, but the women - queens real and fictional - were saddened by their passings.

That's all for now, everyone. Namaste! Have a great weekend!
