Posting early - I'm knackered and will be asleep soon.

The following quotation is from Written In my Own Heart’s Blood by Diane Gabaldon, Copyright 2014. All Rights Reserved. Chapter 69 – Sparrow Fart

“Jesus, if he thinks he’s a chance in hell of preventing Dorothea from marrying Dr. Hunter . . . I believe I’d pay good money to overhear the conversation when he meets Denzell,” he remarked. “Who would you bet on – given that Hal hasn’t got a regiment at his back to enforce his opinions?”

“He likely has met him by now. As to odds – Denzell, three to two,” I said, after a moment’s consideration. “He’s got not only God but love – and Dorothea – on his side, and I do think that will outweigh even Hal’s brand of . . . of . . . autocratic conviction?”

“I’d call it undiluted bastardliness, myself, but, then, I’m his brother. I’m allowed liberties.”

I chuckled at the chapter title as well. 

[> I can't help it. I've come to like Hal. I wouldn't want him as a relative, mind you, but he has his good side. -- Swarl, 16:46:51 12/21/14 Sun

[> I'm okay with Hal, as long as he keeps his schemes away from Jamie :) What I love here is Claire and John interaction -- how easy they are with each other now, and they are very alike, with their wry sense of humour. -- Rita, 06:46:29 12/22/14 Mon

[> [> I was listening to Echo this morning and it's interesting how Claire and John have become friends during their month as a married couple. Neither of them seems at all ill at ease over their night of drunken carnal knowledge. I hope Jamie can get past that and stop bristling at John. -- kgp, 07:06:56 12/22/14 Mon

[> [> [> That morning after conversation did wonders for their relationship :) -- Rita, 08:54:46 12/22/14 Mon

[> [> [> [> this morning I listened to the second encounter, John comes to her room and offers to hold her for a while (and a bit more). Rather than threatened by him, as she was by BJR, I think she feels comforted that someone else cares deeply for Jamie as well and will watch over him. -- kgp, 10:02:59 12/22/14 Mon

[> [> [> I agree, Jamie needs to come to terms, and Claire and John's relationship, now, is what Jamie would have wanted if he hadn't accidentally drowned and then was brought back to life. :) -- LisaW, 09:39:29 12/22/14 Mon

[> Bless Bree. She had such difficult times that she was not prepared, emotionally or experientially, to handle. -- Lady Linda, 20:52:51 12/22/14 Mon
