The following quotation is from Lord John and the Private Matter by Diana Gabaldon. Copyright 2003 all rights reserved Chapter 6 A Visit To The Convent

“We met Bob Harte when I was nay more than five,” she said, putting a fist to her mouth to stifle a belch. “He waited until I was eleven - when I began to bleed - and then . . . “ She paused, blinking, as though searching for inspiration.

“And then your mother, bent upon protecting your virtue, slew him him in order to preserve you,” Grey suggested. “She was taken up and hanged, of course, whereupon you found yourself obliged by necessity to embrace the fate which she had sacrificed herself to prevent?” He lifted his glass to her in ironic toast, leaning back in his seat.

Rather to his surprise, she burst out laughing.
