This week's excerpt:
She'd been the silly sister who followed after Lydia, while Mary was the pious sister who put a damper on most of their activities. Well, not her activities, per say, but mostly Lydia's, which Kitty had happily engaged in until... until George Wickham entered their lives.
Once Lydia met him she became even more untameable. None of the family knew how many times she snuck out to meet him. Kitty begged her to behave in a more circumspect manner, but Lydia then only teased her that she was becoming more like Mary. Angry and hurt that her closest sister was abandoning her, she'd retorted she'd never become like Mary.
Cruel words and not for the first time she'd had to ask forgiveness for such an unchristian attitude toward her sister - a sister who didn't deserve those cruel and unkind words.
"I'm so glad we have this moment of peace together." Impulsively, she reached out and grabbed Mary's hand. "At times I feel we are strangers living under the same roof."There you go. Kitty is healing the breach.
