Subject: QOTD for Thursday 25 January 2024

The following quote is from Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone by Diana Gabaldon, chapter 88, “In Which Things Do Not Add Up,” Copyright 2021 by Diana Gabaldon, all rights reserved.

“Gabriel licked his lips and huffed out a great white sigh.
‘What are we to do, then, Silvia?’ he said, plainly struggling for calm. ‘Thee knows the girls want to be with me as much as I wish to be with them. Whatever thee thinks of me at present – how can thee be so heartless as to take them from me?’
‘As for thee, I expect thy other children will comfort thee,’ Silvia said, in as nasty a tone as Ian had ever heard from her. She rubbed a hand over her face, hard, also striving for calm. ‘No. Thee is right in that, at least. I do know how much they love thee and I will never say anything to them that would blacken thee in their eyes. I think thee should tell them, though, about thy children here. They will understand that, but they will not understand why thee would keep the truth from them – and they are bound to find out sooner or later, though not from me.’”

I confess this is one thread to Bees that I have no memory of at all. In typing it out, I wonder what the purpose of this story line is. Does anyone have any thoughts or memories of that?

[> Ian is bringing back the little family that helped Jamie when his back stiffened up in New York; the husband had left/been taken by Indians, and she had to resort to prostitution to put hood on the table. She had 3 girls. Jamie shared what food he had with him when his back went out, then took care of a man that had started to beat her.....when Ian went back Jamie asked him to find them and bring them to the Ridge. -- Janet, Thu, January 25 2024, 10:44:22

[> [> [> Was Gabriel her husband? Did he start another family? I remember when she helped Jamie but I don’t remember this part. Did she end up on the Ridge with Bobby? -- Kathy in PA, Thu, January 25 2024, 13:55:39

[> [> [> [> Yes, they met up with Gabriel, her husband, who had made no attempt to return to Silvia and the girls. He started a new family elsewhere, but degraded Silvia for how she managed to keep them all alive and fed. He wanted to keep the girls with him. Mrs. Hardiman & her 3 girls went back to the Ridge, where she ended up with Bobby. -- DianaH, Thu, January 25 2024, 14:09:52
