Q: Why go to Spain?

HM: To discover the truth about my brother’s death. To find the man who was with Jamie when he died.

JH: It were my job to support his lordship in that endeavour.

Q: You’re both veterans of the Peninsular Campaign. How did you feel about returning to Spain?

HM: Less than delighted, frankly. The place holds unpleasant memories. However, my feelings were irrelevant. Duty to the family came first.

JH: It’s not my place to argue about where we go or when. I just pack t’ bags and follow him.

Q: When you first met Elena and Concha did you anticipate their closer involvement in events?

HM: Certainly not. Elena was destined for a convent after all. I only spoke to Concha later on.

JH: Did I heck. How wrong can you be, eh?

Q: Why didn’t you just refuse to allow closer involvement?

HM: I couldn’t refuse without being cruel or exposing both women to danger.

JH: Aye, they had us in a cleft stick and they knew it. Too clever by half, I reckon.

Q: What were the most difficult aspects of your journey?

HM: Apart from brigands, bad weather, dirty inns and poor food? Trying to behave like a gentleman when my thoughts sometimes –alright, often–weren’t gentlemanly.

JH: Trying to invent taller stories than Concha. I never was a gentleman.

Q: Overall, how would you describe your trip to Spain?

HM: Life-changing, and in all the right ways.

JH: That it were, no question.

The journey has a profound effect on the protagonists in Redemption of a Fallen Woman. Have you ever been on a journey that changed your life for the better?
