Wondrous Words Wednesday

Wondrous Words Wednesday

My words today are taken from the book: Spirit Of Lost Angels  by Liza Perrat.

1. Cabriolet- is a two wheeled carriage with a folding top.

2. Fiacre- is a small hackney coach.

3. La Salpetriere- was a dumping ground for the poor of Paris an it served as a prison.

  1. Wasn't there a car named a Cabriolet few years ago? Now that makes sense!

  3. Nice to meet you! I guess this book has French influences? Yup- Volkswagon had a Cabriolet. I'm curious about the pronunciation and etymology of these words... I like YA too, so I'm looking forward to more of your posts!
