An Illustrated Excerpt from ‘Sugarcane’

This is a character development piece and supplement to ‘Before the Fire,’ my historical fiction novel. It is a snapshot from the childhoods of the Marchand sisters- Vivienne and L’illien. I’ve illustrated a quote from the short story supplemental piece to ‘Before the Fire,’ titled ‘Sugarcane.’ I used an existing painting, with a green, bamboo-like background, for the illustration, as it reminded me of the appearance of sugarcane. The painting also features colorful flowers and flower petals.

I decided to not include ‘Sugarcane’ in ‘Before the Fire‘ for the sake of story continuity, but it may be included in future editions of the book.
