The Janus Stone: While on a Romantic Date, Ruth . . .

BIG SPOILER ALERT!!! SELF IS WARNING YOU!!! IF YOU THINK SHE IS KIDDING, SHE’S NOT!!!

Ruth’s date for the evening is a fellow archaeologist named Max. For a woman who weighs 14 stone (at least), Ruth Galloway does get around.

Now, Max has invited Ruth onto his boat. It’s a very cozy space, with a bed and a loo and everything.

“Do you have a boyfriend now?”

“No.” Ruth knows that now is the time to tell Max that while she doesn’t have a boyfriend, she does have another, rather permanent, commitment. She hesitates, trying to find the words.

“Ruth,” Max reaches out to touch her hand.

“I’m pregnant,” Ruth blurts out.

“What?” Max sits back. It is dark now and Ruth can’t see the expression on his face.

The Janus Stone, p. 149

Self liked the first book in the series, The Crossing Places, but The Janus Stone is even better.

Stay tuned.
