Chapter 43 of the book The Maid of the Mill
Good morning to you, Jim.
I'm falling behind with this story. One reason being, that I find it difficult to concentrate for very long--I have a touch of ADD about me and it drives me to distraction and utter frustration as I read and re-read over again...
I am sorry to have taken so long, but I'll get there, no doubt :)
Well... onto your intriguing story.
That Tom of yours seems to be a right little rascal, an upper class one at that too!
Gawd, I remember those threepences like they were yesterday!
'I mean,' said Tom with a knowing wink, 'that my hammer will set off such a peal as will get the steeple rocking, and twist it so as no amount of virgins getting wed in the church could ever straighten it out.' This sentance is just brilliant. lol
Looks like this Tom is heading for trouble by the looks... and his father has caught eye of his antics... oo err
and his poor ole mum!
Look forward to trying to read the next chapter :)
Love the language and its sense of time.
