Subject: QOTD for Saturday, November 18, 2023

The following quote is from The Fiery Cross by Diana Gabaldon, chapter 97, “Conditions of the Blood.” Copyright©️ 2001 by Diana Gabaldon, all rights reserved.

“The doctor had looked up, glancing from me to Frank and back, his face twisted with embarrassment—and his eyes filled with a kind of cold speculation as he looked at me. I might as well have worn a scarlet ‘A’ embroidered on my bosom, I thought—or in this case, a scarlet ‘B.’
Frank, bless him, had seen the look, and said easily, ‘My wife was a widow; I adopted Bree as a baby.’ The doctor’s face had thawed at once into apologetic reassurance, and Frank had gripped my hand, hard, behind the folds of my skirt. My hand tightened in remembered acknowledgment, squeezing back.”

I’ve just caught up with all your quotes and I think they’re brilliant. I have of course, read all the Books but had forgotten so much about Frank and how good he was at the beginning. This was an excellent example of his total acceptance of Brianna and his love for Claire. Which chapter is it in please?

[> [> [> I really remember the scene because Frank handled it so well. I can’t remember what the accident with Bri was, but I think Claire was working and Frank took her to the Dr. Which was very bad in those days. -- Kathy in PA, Sat, November 18 2023, 13:32:26
