Hello Bloghoppers! Today I thought I'd show you the lighter side of Hyacinth. Kathy and her family are attending the yearly Memorial Day picnic and as she's new in town, one of her fears is not making any new friends since it is summertime and she doesn't have school to help.

“You must be Kathy.”
Whipping around, Kathy came face-to-face with a girl about her age with straight orange-red hair and bright green eyes. “Hi.”
“I’m Camille. Call me Cami. Mom and Dad loved big names. Both Xan and I got one. How do you like Hyacinth?” The words spilled out of the girl’s mouth, but her friendly nature made Kathy smile.

Courted By Discipline
When Kathy Bretherton moved to Hyacinth at the age of eighteen, she looked forward to living amongst people who believed in traditional values like her family did. She did not expect to become part of the Hyacinth Courting Pool and the object of interest of every man looking for a wife.
Alexander Covington was the most eligible bachelor in town and he wanted her. For Kathy, who grew up in a household where the man was the head of the home and her and her mother's jobs were to take care of it, learning to accept him as her leader was relatively easy. Receiving his discipline was the life-changing part.
About the series In Hyacinth:
Hyacinth, Washington is all about traditional values. In Hyacinth; its residents live their lives by discipline; there is a strong male head of house; and words like trust, honor, and kindness aren't just buzzwords. Each story in the series is of a young woman (18-20) and her struggle to figure out who she is in this little town while at the same time going through Hyacinth's old-fashioned courting system. On their way to meet, get to know, and finally marry their princes, these heroines grow in ways they and their town never expected.
While spanking does exist in every story (more in some than others), the stories are more about the growth of the heroine and loving discipline in all its far-reaching ways, than about spanking.
Now, hop away for Saturday Spankings :)
