Subject: First though, Willie has to redefine his self-image and accept that. He's still an Earl but no longer a "Yorkshiremen back to the flood". He also doesn't know Jamie's full history - that he had been a Laird of a small estate and responsible for people, his full military resume, and that he was received at court in France. He knows he was a groom, but does he know how he came to be one? He knows he's a rebel and had been a General at the last battle. I'm looking forward to his education.
In reply to: fionaj 's message, "Hi Rita, I agree, it's totally understandable for the times. Remember John's response when Brianna asked him about Jamie perhaps marrying Geneva, if they had loved one another [ABOSAA, ch.116]? "Where in the name of God were you raised?" [LOL!] I think one thing that has helped Jamie is the fact that as a Scot and a Highlander under British rule, he was not at the top of the hierarchy. That's one extra hurdle Willie will have to overcome." on 07:25:27 12/17/14 Wed

[this is connected in my brain, though I have no real reason for thinking it is connected in reality ;-)] in Brotherhood of the Blade, when John is searching the Dunsanys' house for the chapel on the night before Geneva is buried, he mentions that Geneva herself had shown it to him, and "it dated from a much earlier century, when the Viscounts of the Wastwater had been Catholic, and it had been disused for years." I guess "French" and "Catholic" just rang some bells for me.
