I have been reading and loving this book. Until Friday, when the combination of mad woman with and out of control wheelie suitcase, getting off the train at Paddington and my sore knee, resulted in me sprawled accross the floor and my book under the train.
Apart from being physically painful, it was upsetting because I lost the book.
Jack Verney is in the Levant trying to make his fortune, Mun Verney’s mad wife seems slightly more sane, but they still don’t have an heir, Ralph’s various sisters are off doing things that respectable 17th century women shouldn’t do and what became of the Ralph’s black sheep brother Tom?
I need to know and I’m on a book buying ban…
That woman in Paddington Station, was a menace not just to my knee but to my peace of mind!!
