Quote of the Day

Mrs. Mallory was sorry about Penny's collar-bone, but she quite obviously thought that it had been broken in a good cause. "Traces of a Roman villa right there at St. Ursula's Court," she said. "It's wonderful! Of course, there are amazing excavations at Silchester, and I've seen the Roman villa at Lullingstone, in Kent, but to have one of our own!"

From CROOKED SIXPENCE, Chapter 16, Happy Ending.
