Subject: QOTD for Monday, March 6, 2017 The following quote is taken from Written in My Own Heart’s Blood by Diana Gabaldon, Ch.3. In Which the Women, as Usual Pick Up The Pieces, Copyright 2014 by Diana Gabaldon. All Rights Reserved.

Merde on toast,” Mrs. Figg murmured. She turned abruptly to me, her small black-currant eyes still narrowed. “Where’s his lordship?”
“Ah,” I said. This was going to be rather sticky, I saw. While deeply disapproving of most people, Mrs. Figg was devoted to John. She wasn't going to be at all pleased to hear that he’s been abducted by –
“For that matter, where’s my brother?” Jenny inquired, glancing around as though expecting Jamie to appear suddenly out from under the settee.

[> My first reading of Claire and Johns marriage shocked me....took me a long time adjusting....I would imagine Jamie's shock would be huge....the fact that he didn't kill John IMO speaks volumes on his respect for John and maybe a small amount of appreciation that John looked after Claire when they thought Jamie was dead....mer Figg and Jennie wouldn't know but Claire knew both men and knew even though they had disappeared ..all would work out in the end.... -- Aussiewench, Mon, March 06 2017, 12:01:02
