!Quote of the Day:
Hisselpenny was the unfortunate victim of circumstances that dictated
that she be only-just-pretty, only-just-wealthy, and possessed of a
terrible propensity for wearing extremely silly hats. This last being
the facet of Ivy's character that Alexia found most difficult to bear.
In general she found Ivy a restful, congenial and, most importantly,
willing partner in any excursion."
