It actually is a title, you know. Some people do have the ill fortune to be burdened with wierd names. But look at it this way...at the time when this tale was unfolding, likely there was no such item as coleslaw in England! ;)
Me? I am a romancophile hiding away from real life in my world of fiction. I am a fan of historical romance, and regency is my favourite time to set a story in. I love grammatically correct tales since then I can concentrate on the plot rather than being distracted by something I want to correct, but I can quite happily throw over pretenses for a gripping story. Did I mention that I am an English teacher? I am tardy in reviewing and would like to beg forgiveness of all writers now itself for that abysmal habit of mine. I do try, but my marriage, son and job stop me from voting and commenting as much as I might wish. And I continue to be awestruck at all the love people have given to my novella and poems on Wattpad. Ratings don't matter that much to me (not a lot at least, I am but human!), but the acceptance and encouragement of all the wonderful people out here does. I am always humbled when people express their feelings for my writing, even if it is but a line or two. I love hearing from you all!

And yet, I hope she is a believable character? I tried my hardest to make her good, but not anything extraordinary...basically she is practical, loyal, independent and yes, good. :) I think her mischievous streak keeps her from getting boring. her decision was also based on practicality...she knew how easy it is to sour relationships if you overburden someone with your needs, whether financial or emotional. And if by taking herself out of the equation she could secure her beloved family's future, she would definitely do it.
Ha ha ha... Yes, some names live on through characters, don't they? So overlook the Fred part, and keep the Lord Edgerton part in mind. :) As for who's responsible...dum dum da dum! Read on!!!
It means, he exclaimed. why, what did you think?
First of all, thanks for commenting on each chapter till now. I really love to listen to my readers ' opinions. As for Rachel 's sacrifice, this is like her all over... Caring for her brothers came naturally to her. Even then, girls were never sent to university for higher studies in those days whereas men needed the same for future prospects, especially those aspiring for the clergy. As the children of a clergyman, I believe they must place high value on education for the boys.
Thank you so much for pointing that out! I have made the requisite change in the text.
