They trained together at Edinburgh, but since that time this doctor has specialized in particular complaints. Mama was glad to see us content, to see the different treatment of us so well resolved.

The Favored Child book. Pros:Philippa Gregory sure knows how to spin a great tale, and she never fails to engross the reader in her sordid character's lives. Cons:I did not like Julia's weakness and passiveness as a character. She was not nearly as strong as Beatrice, and I was hoping that she would have a stronger and bolder personality.

But when I was a child, I was a girl on Wideacre. A girl who knew everything, and yet knew nothing. I was their only child, the only heir. I was raised with my cousin Richard, the son of Beatrice, my father’s sister. A girl who could see the past all around as she walked on the land – dimly, like firelit smoke. Those two – my papa and his sister-made my cousin and me joint heirs to Wideacre.
