Worldly is a word we use to describe someone with experience, which can be a positive or negative description. In my book, Forever And Always, my male protagonist, John McDougal, is described as being worldly. He just turned eighteen as the story opens. At five foot eleven inches, he was tall with broad shoulders and lean waist. His full, thick, black hair and brown eyes could make any young lady swoon.
John was of Scottish descent. He spoke with a confident voice, and showed maturity in his actions. At just eighteen, he was far from ready to settle down. John was older and had seen many things in his travels. He was a man of God and not afraid to speak of it. Learn more about who John McDougal was in Forever And Always.
Forever And Always
We have all had a first love that we remember with gentle fondness and loving memories. It isn’t necessarily the first person we date, although for some, that is exactly how it came along. For John McDougal and Patricia Heifelmeyer that is precisely what happened. Who are these people, you ask? John and Patricia are the protagonists in my novel Forever And Always.
When they met back in 1863 in Orleans parish John was the older of the pair. Along with being older you would naturally think he was very ‘experienced in the ways of the world’. Was he? How did they meet? Was it really love at first sight? I can’t tell you here, but all is revealed in Forever And Always. Here is a link to purchase the book:
Do you believe in love? I think we all do. I know I do personally. The love of my life is sitting beside me.
