Must Be Love is chapter 15 of Fine Line, sequel to Woodcutter’s Revival. Both books, written by Jerry Slauter are historical fiction, set at the beginning of the final phase of the Industrial Revolution.

In 1907 proper young widows grieved for a full year. Society dictated that young widows put on the outer appearance of grieving, such as wearing all black, refraining from attracting the attention of young men or noticing young single men existed.

Although society had rules, people were human. People had needs.
The strict outer mores and restrictions might have even intensified the inner emotions, the needs, and the affection.

Love usually takes time. Even when people fall in love at first sight, the details take time to work out: the uncertainty that the other person might feel the same way; the irrepressible feelings and longings; wondering how much of one’s feelings to reveal and how much to suppress; and the imagination of spending the future with one other individual.

The following is an excerpt from Must Be Love:

Victoria found herself drawn to books that included,or were likely to include, a love story. She studied them, not as an atheist would study the Bible to find loopholes, but as a philosopher would search for truth; or as a pastor would attempt to drive home the final point to convict the sinner.

Victoria wanted to know love in her mind as a teacher would understand and explain a theory and illuminate the concept for the learner; or a lawyer finding the right evidence to conclusively defend the innocent or convict the guilty. Her obsession was not for the disengaged or dispassionate understanding of the philosopher, student, defender, prosecutor, the jurist or the judge. It was for the emotional acceptance and belief of the true believer - all in with no reservations.

Woodcutter’s Revival is available now. Fine Line is due to be released in 2014.
