Scritto con mano garbata e sensibile.

John’s son and heir, Anson, married the wealthy but eearly Scotch-Irish girl Olivia. The only son and heir was sickly and died, barely even a metaphor for the idea that his aristocratic way of life has, duh, died out. I feel a little ill at ease, having just put the book down.
