The new chapters have been sent to the Moderators for posting.

This weeks chapters open with the discovery that the music room in Grace and Owen's house is much smaller than the one in the Founder's house and too small for the dinner guests to dance in. They depart for the Hall in the O'Connell Realm while Margie collects the music system and demonstrates it for Grace and Owen.

Grace is shocked by the size of the Hall and by how close the people there dance. Later there is Irish dancing, but several of the main characters aren't familiar with them. Lessons are arranged.

Sunday there are questions about their wedding rings at church. Monday morning the surveyor has complaints and questions, but later offers advice. Later the contractor who will be paving Plantation Lane arrives and explains how it will be paved.

That afternoon, Margie and Robert prepare to clear the fields of the weeds and brush. Grace, Owen, and Joe accompany her as she makes her preparations, and Robert deals with the weeds and brush.

Tuesday, Mr. Hickey, the surveyor has questions about the cleared fields and the road work. On Wednesday, discussions turn to what crops to plant. Grace and Joe prepare to leave for town while Owen cleans up his shop. Later he goes out to check on the road work and Mr. Hickey. On returning, he talks with Robert about portals and tractors.

Enjoy these two chapters, more next week.

Keep Well,
