The Countess of Chatteris mothered her son the way her mother had mothered her children—from afar.
FRIDAY 56: “No one is eloping!” Honoria exclaimed. “And you are all playing in the musicale next month.” Sarah and Iris stared at her with identical expressions—two parts surprise and one part indignation. With a healthy dash of dread. “Well, you are,” Honoria muttered.“We all are. It’s our duty.” “Our duty,” Sarah repeated.“To play terrible music?” Honoriastared at her.“Yes.”
