    Default Slight heartsinking

    Hi

    'And why don't you do it, then, Sam?' she asked with a slight heartsinking.

    What does 'slight heartsinking' mean? She asked him that with slight sadness in her heart?

    Thanks

    When your heart sinks, you get a feeling of disappointment, so you're right.
