As their elegant travelling chaise rocked and swayed along the rutted country road, Lady Anne Gilbert leaned her cheek against her husbandÔÇÖs shoulder and heaved a long, impatient sigh. ÔÇ£Another whole hour until we arrive, and already the suspense is positively gnawing at me. I keep wondering what Whitney will be like now that sheÔÇÖs grown up.ÔÇØ
She lapsed into silence and gazed absently out the coach window at the lush, rolling English countryside covered with wild pink Foxglove and yellow Buttercups, trying to envision the niece she hadnÔÇÖt seen in almost eleven years.
ÔÇ£SheÔÇÖll be pretty, just as her mother was. And sheÔÇÖll have her motherÔÇÖs smile, her gentleness, her sweet disposition┬á.┬á.┬á.ÔÇØ
Lord Edward Gilbert cast a skeptical glance at his wife. ÔÇ£Sweet disposition?ÔÇØ he echoed in amused disbelief. ÔÇ£That isnÔÇÖt what her father said in his letter.ÔÇØ
As a diplomat attached to the British Consulate in Paris, Lord Gilbert was a master of hints, evasions, innuendoes,┬áand intrigues. But in his personal life, he preferred the refreshing alternative of blunt truth. ÔÇ£Allow me to refresh your memory,ÔÇØ he said, groping in his pockets and retrieving the letter from WhitneyÔÇÖs father. He perched his spectacles upon his nose, and ignoring his wifeÔÇÖs grimace, he began to read:
ÔÇ£ÔÇèÔÇÿWhitneyÔÇÖs manners are an outrage, her conduct is reprehensible. She is a willful hoyden who is the despair of everyone she knows and an embarrassment to me. I implore you to take her back to Paris with you, in the hope that you may have more success with the stubborn chit than I have had.ÔÇÖÔÇèÔÇØ
Edward chuckled. ÔÇ£Show me where it says sheÔÇÖs ÔÇÿsweet-tempered.ÔÇÖÔÇèÔÇØ
His wife shot him a peevish glance. ÔÇ£Martin Stone is a cold, unfeeling man who wouldnÔÇÖt recognize gentleness and goodness if Whitney were made of nothing else! Only think of the way he shouted at her and sent her to her room right after my sisterÔÇÖs funeral.ÔÇØ
Edward recognized the mutinous set of his wifeÔÇÖs chin and put his arm around her shoulders in a gesture of conciliation. ÔÇ£IÔÇÖm no fonder of the man than you are, but you must admit that, just having lost his young wife to an early grave, to have his daughter accuse him, in front of fifty people, of locking her mama in a box so she couldnÔÇÖt escape had to be rather disconcerting.ÔÇØ
ÔÇ£But Whitney was scarcely five years old!ÔÇØ Anne protested heatedly.
ÔÇ£Agreed. But Martin was grieving. Besides, as I recall, it was not for that offense she was banished to her room. It was later, when everyone had gathered in the drawing roomÔÇöwhen she stamped her foot and threatened to report us all to God if we didnÔÇÖt release her mama at once.ÔÇØ
Anne smiled. ÔÇ£What spirit she had, Edward. I thought for a moment her little freckles were going to pop right off her nose. Admit itÔÇöshe was marvelous, and you thought so too!ÔÇØ
ÔÇ£Well, yes,ÔÇØ Edward agreed sheepishly. ÔÇ£I rather thought she was.ÔÇØ┬á
