I do not feel brave. I feel small and frightened and furious. I have enough on my plate without worrying about some damned prophecy made a hundred years ago. I came to this diary looking for help, for guidance, and instead Mother's heaped more responsibility onto my head. But there was more. Perhaps some of it's actually useful. Something to tell me what I ought to do, besides cowering here in the corner. I pick up the diary again.
"You will be hunted by those who would use you for their own ends. You must be very careful. You cannot trust anyone with your secrets. There is more, and it is worse. I have been frightened to write it all here, lest it fall into the wrong hands. You must seek answers. Those who love knowledge for its own sake will help. Until you know the whole truth of the prophecy, you must not share it with anyone. I am so sorry I am not there to protect you, but I can trust you to take care of Maura and Tess for me. Love always, Mom."

-I am loving this book so far. It is really different than what I was expecting though. I am curious as to what time period this is suppose to be? Is it the 1800s? I can't wait to read more, but school work is demanding. I can't wait to see what is going to happen next!
