A fourposter bed covered in a white counterpane dominated most of the floor space beneath a window. ~ 41 ~ Mr. Peters lit the fire in the hearth‘s grate and left her to herself, saying, ―If you and your lordship need anything, you have only to ask. ‖ Gillian was happy to see him bow out, desperately needing a moment to freshen up a bit. However, once she was relaxed, the implications of the innkeeper‘s kind remarks sank in.
She asked, curiosity making her probe for the truth. His brows came up. He leaned back in his corner. Slowly he nodded his head. ―I knew her all my life…‖ His voice trailed off as if he didn‘t wish to discuss the matter. But Gillian had to ask questions.
