I got an idea while driving into work today and decided to sketch it up. I am piecing together Rose's history from her birth in 1842 to the present (1888) and got the idea for this childhood character. Her name is Elizabeth and will be a new student Rose meets at school.

What Rose has been up to since the end of Rose and Isabel is of major importance and I realized I need to devote a larger part of the book to her than I originally thought. I'm afraid of pulling the audience away from Cora for too long because the book, although it is an ensemble piece, is mainly Cora's story.
Story is hell as they say, but I'm still enjoying these characters very much. Rose is yet again terrifying in my mind and getting more and more so as I write her. Once I figure everything out it think it'll be quite an adventure.
Here's a rough sketch of Rose on some sort of western inspired "throne".

Liz Caster will appear in parts of the CORA book as a saloon dancer. Here is an early attempt at what she may look like.
