The Heir of Rosings Park Chapter 8 — 3 Comments

  1. Aaahh, the Colonel. Left with a nearly-impossible situation he is. But we know who will help, don’t we? 😉

    I am sooooo enjoying this story!! Thanks for posting it!!

  2. Hm, although I like that Michaels is pushing Fitzwilliam to show due respect to Mary, he also is still falling short. It’s hard not to put modern issues of equality into this period where they just didn’t exist.

  3. The Colonel should be more intelligent about this. Michaels is absolutely right to insist on sincerity and integrity in all dealings all the time, both with Mary and with himself. Mary will respond in kind, but she would be entirely within her rights to ask some questions that make Fitzwilliam squirm some. His responses will determine her decision. Anything less would cheapen Mary into a simpering stereotypical female, a failure for Fitzwilliam, Michaels and Mary all around. And Lady Catherine would still need a caregiver — or even two.
    Small typo … you speak of Andrew’s “decent” into opium. I believe the correct word is “descent”.
