VII thru IX

please visit other participants listed here.i almost forgot that Nelly was still telling the story. but wasn't she knitting not sewing when she started. or does Lockwood not know the difference. or has her telling been going on for days. now who the heck are Ellen and Frances. i know i am supposed to be following the story about the baby. but i had to stop just because i just need to. need to refer to the chart that is. thank you Melanie. Frances is the wife brought back by Catherine's brother. and Ellen i did guess is Nelly. really now she has three names. yes. and Melanie is a very nice blogger. who shared this link to all the helpful information. and so while Nelly and Lockwood work out how this story will continue. the behavior of the main characters reminds us just how young they really are. anyone else surprised at who was marking up the calendar. we've all done that. for one silly reason or another. thankfully today we have more grown-up things to keep track of.

They ARE young aren't they? I tend to forget since all of the adult figures seemed to die off so quickly.

That chart was a life-saver! Hadn't given much thought to the characters age, but they really are young. I can't wait to read more...

It's such a fabulous book. Glad you are enjoying it. I still hope to go and visit Haworth again soon so I can share it with you.

Loads of info on the area and "The Brontes" section is full of the life of Emily and her family. Such a sad tale.

That chart is really handy! Plus, it made me grateful that there weren't any Earnshaw Heathcliffs running around.

Hilarious! I am sitting here, giggling away. Yes, you are right, Nelly is Ellen, as many Ellen's were called Nelle as a nickname, I have an aunt who suffer the same nickname. I must check out this chart though with all the names to help me.
