@GratianaLovelace Yep. That was nice. She reminds me of a much more strict Ms. Hughs.

I love your descriptions! They are so lifelike and real, it feels like I am experiencing all the same things she is. I love this story so far and I look forward to reading the rest :D

I already detest Mrs. Gilbert.  Ha!  At lease Roslind held her own for a little while.
