Here are a few images that remind me of Faith, Gentle Reader!
This is probably the most typical image of a young lady like Faith from the time period, everything is pretty spot on except she isn’t wearing a hat.
Notice her neck is very thickly covered? That would be typical for an American:
ABSOLUTELY NO VAMPIRES WELCOME.
A little later in time, I kind of gravitated to the style and the stance of this image. Again it’s very Faith in the way she holds herself and the simplicity of the outfit.
I chose this one because I imagine Faith is often looking down, scoping for new and exciting rocks. This is typical behavior for archaeologists too, so I know it well. I’m not sure the hat is really her style, but perhaps Teddy picked it out for her.
I chose this last because I think this is how Channing sees Faith. This is the side of her that no one else gets, that is private to them, and is one of the reasons he adores her so much.
Speaking of which, curious about the lapis lazuli reference in the book?
Read more about Faith, my very first American main character, and how she goes up against the werewolf Major Channing in How to Marry a Werewolf (In 10 Easy Steps).

Guilty of an indiscretion? Time to marry a werewolf.
