Subject: QOTD for Tuesday, March 14, 2017 The following quote is taken from Written in My Own Heart’s Blood by Diana Gabaldon, Ch.83. Sundown, Copyright 2014 by Diana Gabaldon All Rights Reserved.


“What is it, Jamie?” Denny asked, impatient to be about his business.
“Your betrothed,” Jamie said, sounding bemused. “Coming up the road with a gang of soldiers.”
“Does thee think she is under arrest?” Denny asked, with a fair assumption of calm. I saw his hand tremble slightly as he picked up a linen napkin, though.
“I dinna think so, “ Jamie said doubtfully. “She’s laughing wi’ a couple of them.”
Denny took his spectacles off and wiped them carefully.
“Dorothea is a Grey, “ he point out. “Any member of her family would pause on the gallows to exchange witty banter with the hangman before graciously putting the noose about his neck with his own hands.”

[> Denny sure got the measure of the Greys early on, didn't he? Thank you for your wonderful weeks of quotes from Moby. I haven't reread this one over and over like the first five and I'm really enjoying remembering these great parts. DH has been sick and I haven't been able to post much, but am reading every day. One last comment, wasn't the title "Morning Air Awash With Angels" just beautiful? I think the angels were Claire, Jenny and Mre. Figg. -- Kathy in PA, Tue, March 14 2017, 6:06:50
