    A bit of Venice, a bit of Wales, a bit of Devon, and a bit of New England and babies, this one gives you more of the conversational floweryness that is sometimes a joy to follow and sometimes a show-offy drag on the story (for instance, the section on Francesca's besotted tutor, dull dull dull). I read this one out of order but other than a spoiler about Salamina, it jumps around in time so much that it doesn't matter. Still very very conservative and I could have done without the commentary abo A bit of Venice, a bit of Wales, a bit of Devon, and a bit of New England and babies, this one gives you more of the conversational floweryness that is sometimes a joy to follow and sometimes a show-offy drag on the story (for instance, the section on Francesca's besotted tutor, dull dull dull).

    Meh, this was okay - kind of a nice postscript, but not ultimately necessary. I felt like it didn't really add much, though the final chapter was charming.

    This is the first and last episode in the Penelope series. It takes place just after A Catherdral Courtship and features cameos from the characters of that novel. As Penelope and friends travel through Europe, she jots down impressions in her diary. These impressions are not as polished or as amusing as her other extracts. The descriptions are not as detailed and the story focuses a lot on other characters. It concludes with Penelope telling us what she's up to now in 19__.
