You will never be replaced in my heart.

my love for my pretty Arabian babies:

wonderful bunnies which
bring me such joy and pleasure):

As always, she wore white: white hat, white gloves, white gown, white shoes.
Quotations
Chapter 1:
A sure mark of good breeding is the suppression of
any undue emotion, such as anger, mortification,
laughter, or any form of selfishness.
The Illustrated Manners Book
ROBERT DE VALCOURT, 1855
Chapter 2:
As we look, so we feel, so we act,
and so we are.

To your equals a tranquil nature and

Chapter 4:
When a woman abandons herself to terrible
fits of anger with little or no cause, and
makes herself a frightful spectacle, by
turning white with rage, rolling up her
eyes, drawing in her lips, gritting her teeth,
clenching her hands, and stamping her feet,
depend on it, she is not of a nervous, but
of a furious temperament.
Miss Leslie's Behaviour Book
ELIZA LESLIE, 1853
Chapter 5:
A loveless marriage is an unchaste union.
Common Sense for Maid, Wife, and Mother

Book description
Bronte Haviland, an aristocrat, was shocked to learn that Captain Brandon Tremain, England's most celebrated hero, had been imprisoned for treason and transported to Australia. For years, she had admired him from a distance and hoped they would meet face-to-face. But she vows to forget him and subdue her disappointment.

When they meet after all on an Australian beach, Bronte must decide: will she treat Tremain like a traitor? Or will she resurrect her infatuation?
