Highland, by Leo Black

Hi folks! So I was visiting a friend in Denver when this post went up on the Heroine’s Blog, so I’m only just now getting the chance to share it. Thanks for your patience!

I deeply appreciate that Leo made his highland heroine every bit as well-protected and non-sexualized as the highland bruiser there with her. Like her companion, our lass has an air of strength and confidence. She comes across as a genuinely competent character, made tough and smart by hard work and the high mountain winters.

July 16th 1999: John F. Kennedy Jr. dies

On this day in 1999 John F. Kennedy Jr., his wife Carolyn Bessette Kennedy and sister-in-law Lauren Bessette died in a plane crash. JFK Jr., the son of the late President, was flying the aircraft when it crashed into the Atlantic Ocean just off the coast of Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts. The crash was supposedly due to pilot error. They were reported missing on July 16th and their bodies were found on the ocean floor on July 21st. The tragic death of the assassinated President’s son at age 38, who captured the heart of the nation when he saluted his father’s coffin, fueled the idea of a ‘Kennedy curse’ on the family.

"We dared to think, in that other Irish phrase, that this John Kennedy would live to comb gray hair, with his beloved Carolyn by his side.But, like his father, he had every gift but length of years”
- John’s uncle Senator Edward Kennedy at his memorial service
