“Sara had quite a time adjusting to South American food. It’s much stronger in flavor than British fare. Of course, it looks different too. You should have seen her face when she first saw an avocado. She saw it was bright green and totally refused to try it. Nothing any of us could say or do would convince her. Though curiosity did get the better of her. She ended up sneaking into the kitchen one night and trying it. Shortly after that, avocados started disappearing and our cooks couldn’t understand where they were going. We ended up finding the pits in her room. Turns out she loved them.”

“I planned for Sara to stay in Paraiso. There was a dignitary, the son of one of my best friends, who fancied her. I had every intention of arranging their marriage. But, the tension between her and my wife worsened. When Sara told me of her desire to return to Gale, I realized that it was for the best. Being back in the public would make it difficult for her to disappear without someone questioning. I realized it was the safest thing, next to being with me. I honestly never believed she’d find her family. I guess I was wrong.”
