    I started to read Moll but didn't like it. Reading two at a time might be too much for a dottering, low energy old timer like me. But perhaps after Maggie. Of course, you can get a head start on it...

    Prison

    I forgot to add the following note from the Epilogue:

    Epilogue

    I am utterly puzzled as to how anyone can feel that way. To my way of thinking, it was highly significant and affirms all of what we have been discussing in these pages: that the story is one of...
