    Summary

    "You flatter me, as ever," she said, perhaps a touch more tartly than she would've usually been inclined to, and headed for the welcome pitcher of water at the side. There was practically no staggering on the way, which was a most definite improvement on their earlier sessions. "My arms feel like they are about to drop off entirely, I doubt that I would be able to beat a small field mouse when that is the case."

    It started with Ayasha's indrawn gasp of a breath, with her grabbing Ben's hand and squeezing, and with Ben realizing, "I see her too."

    Summary

    Dominique could never be certain these days whether when the Viellard coach drew up to her door, it would contain her dear Henri or his wife, Chloë. The young woman visited not infrequently, at first to pay her respects and visit with Charmian, and later, once they had reached a more intimate level of friendship, because of her own particular interests. Henri was well aware that he shared his plaçée with his wife, and was quite content with the arrangement. "She's much more agreeable at home now," he confided in Dominique once.

    Summary

    Ben still has a scar, a pale twist of flesh on the inside of his arm. He doesn't remember what the mark looked like before Livia burned it off. He only knows that she has a similar scar; hers is on her upper arm, made by a mother or grandmother or auntie in that long-ago, hard-to-imagine time when she, too, was a child.

    It is something that was done for every child on the plantation.

    Summary

    "Perhaps it's just as well your husband has his hammock in the fo'c's'le," said Hannibal Sefton, surveying the neatly made bunk of the Triton's passenger cabin with an expression of gravest doubt. "I fear we could both take the floor for the night and there still wouldn't be room."

    Summary

    “The good widow couldn't dump you in the fast section of the river, apparently,” January said. “It had to be the mud.”

    “If she'd only panicked five minutes earlier,” Rose agreed with a sigh. “We were on the bridge then – although given the state of that particular river I wouldn't necessarily put money on it being that much cleaner.”
