I did not pick any, as they are so small. Mary shook her head, and her voice lost a little of its enthusiasm. For his part Cuff knew only that there was a sort of understanding between miss and the captain, and that he, old Cuff, meant to help it along. The help he provided was of a particular nature.

The two young people wished to maintain a correspondence, but they could not do so openly. Mary had also coached him in a likely story should a letter be queried, for she had no confidence in his innate powers of deception. It was all very difficult. She had not actually seen Holland for more than six months, and their communications in the meantime had been very sparse.
Indeed, he seemed to hesitate over every line. His efforts had also been restricted, however, by circumstances beyond his control. He held a staff appointment at the regimental headquarters at Woolwich—a place known as the Warren—but in November he had been sent to Gibraltar, ostensibly to oversee an extension to the great siege tunnels. This had not been the only, or even the primary, reason for his employment there, but the epistolary effect had been the same—the mail did not travel very quickly between Gibraltar and Suffolk, and there was always the chance that shipwreck or enemy action might disrupt it altogether.
She could hardly answer his cautious reports, in which details of fortress routine featured prominently, with wild displays of emotion.

Her letters must mirror his, with accounts of her days at Lindham Hall, or the progress of her legal affairs, or references to the weather. Nor could she reply too promptly. If he waited a month between letters then so must she. None of this was the result of indifference or coquetry on her part, but rather a halfunderstood notion that she must not commit herself any further than she had done. What did she really know of Captain Holland, after all? A correspondence like theirs was not strictly proper—not proper at all, in fact—and people who did improper things often suffered for them, or at least were found out.
And being found out, especially whilst she was under Mrs.

Squaring her shoulders and lifting her chin, the latter a particular gesture of decision, Mary told herself not to think about Captain Holland and informed Cuff that she must go inside. They parted on those wise words, Mary to the Hall, where she intended to arrange her flowers, and Cuff to the stables to give the harnesses a thorough clean, by which he meant that he was going to have a nap.
Mary pushed the heavy front door closed behind her, kicked off her old boots, and retrieved the neat leather slippers she had left in the passage. She had promised Mrs.
Tipton to give up ineligible footwear, but with a private exception for gardening, long walks, and any activity that might prove particularly wet or muddy. Having made the necessary change, she dropped her boots into the large urn that held a collection of walking sticks, a sword that had allegedly seen action at the Battle of Sedgemoor, and Mrs.
It was from the pantry, therefore, that Mary emerged some time later, clutching two jugs of tastefully arranged spring flowers. One she placed on the sideboard in the entrance hall, and the other she carried into the parlor. As Mary crossed the room Mrs.
Tipton awakened. She was a small, sharp, imperious old lady, and she blinked at Mary from behind steelrimmed spectacles. I hope you are pleased with them? The garden is looking lovely in the sunshine. And where is Mr.
The Counterfeit Guest by Rose Melikan (Paperback, 2010)
He ought to have been helping Peggy to lift the stair carpet, but I expect he has made himself scarce, as he generally does on such occasions. Servants getting above themselves, and people unwilling to take a firm hand. And what has been the result? Revolutions, and guillotines, and now this fellow Bonaparte. Well, I shall soon put an end to it. We shall have no Rights of Man at Lindham Hall, nor any other nonsense. Heaven help us if we go the way of the French—the whole country in an uproar and men taking off their breeches. Tipton repeated, her eyes flashing. She disliked being interrupted.
In fact. Young persons were impressionable, after all. But little does she know that Winter lives a double life, as a masked vigilante determined to protect his community, even with violence.
