    Summary

    I'm taking my two favorite characters into a whole new universe!

    Welcome to a version of the world created by Deborah Harkness in the All Souls Trilogy, a series that tells the story of Diana and Matthew, a witch and vampire that fall in love. In her universe of creatures, vampires, daemons, and witches all live amongst humans, but for centuries there have been rules against any intermingling, rules that have recently changed. Despite the covenant being broken, the prejudice and fears between species still exist.

    This is the world that Carol and Therese find themselves in. Carol is a witch, born into a well-known family. Therese is a vampire. They are drawn to one another for reasons neither can explain and must fight against their own cultures, traditions, and feelings in a brave new world.

    Summary

    For over a century, two northern California farming families, the Airds and Belivets, have been at odds. They raised various crops over the decades, but both clans began to concentrate on growing and harvesting walnuts in the 1920s. Deadly gun violence haunted this feud in the 19th Century. Later, the weapons became words and societal backstabbing.

    Therese Belivet returns to the groves in 1967 to teach at the local high school. Low and behold, Carol Aird's daughter, Rindy, is in Therese's Honors English class. Will it be two cats in a burlap sack or a pair of lovelorn souls discovering romance among the Walnut groves?

    Summary

    Therese Belivet flees the shadows of her youth, seeking a new life. The shifting America of 1962 is rife with opportunities for such rebirth. She's paid her dues; the hard-won Master's Degree and Teaching Credential top her resume. The twenty-two-year-old needs a chance, a break. Might a high-school English department head be her ray of light? Carol Aird of New York Public School District #3 has a discerning eye for talent and character; she seeks both at the New York State Teachers Employment Fair.

    Can a true, forever love blossom in an ordinary school setting?

    Summary

    And she could feel it. That familiar tug of her heartstrings, that leaping in her chest, the flutter in her abdomen.

    When Carol turned and caught her staring, she looked away, but not quick enough to avoid the blush that overtook her cheeks.

    Summary

    She asked once, how Abby met women.

    A smile curled across Abby’s face. “There are places… in the city. Beyond that, sometimes there’s just a way of looking at someone. The way they look back at you. A gaze that lingers a little too long.”

    Carol knew what Abby was alluding to. She’d experienced it countless times herself, with Abby, with other women. Sometimes unreciprocated, Carol left staring on her own, other times there was eye contact that lasted beyond simple acknowledgement. Carol had always chalked it up to pure admiration, though. And she’d never been compelled enough to act further, as much as she would’ve liked to. No, she wasn’t one to take chances, only pursuing sure bets.

    Until one day, she went to the store. Goddamn Frankenberg’s.

    Summary

    Carol Aird was certainly Therese’s friend. They’d met when Therese first started working at the advertising agency about a year prior. Carol worked in analytics, while Therese worked in creative. Their teams would meet up a couple of times a month, at most, but the first time the meeting happened, Therese and Carol sort of…hit it off. Therese couldn’t really explain it, but they’d just clicked, and that same night, Carol invited Therese (and, nicely, Dannie) out for drinks with her friends. Therese had barely noticed anyone else was at the bar besides Carol.

    Their timing, though, was never right.

    Summary

    A desperate woman must elude two groups of pursuers: deadly foreign agents and her own pathetically deceived Federal and state law enforcement agencies. She needs to rest, heal, and refuel. Will a sleepy inn nestled among California’s ancient Sequoias provide respite? Can the lovely innkeeper mend this fugitive's shattered heart?

    Once again, I'm writing in third person limited from Therese’s perspective.

    Summary

    The events from the book told in the tone of the film. Like most films adapted from novels, Carol (2015) left out a lot of plot and scenes from Highsmith's "The Price of Salt." This work is a collection of those original moments from the book rewritten as if they had all made it in the film. Deviates slightly from both the book and the screenplay to incorporate my thoughts in recreating these moments and the main plot. Hope you enjoy!
