|But first I went to school in Paris; and then there was that trip I took with Mother and Dad to America; and then I met Ken and married him. After that, as we know all too well, the war broke out.|

Ray *still puzzled*
|It's not Miss Leslie is it?|
|Having said all of that, I did write a chapter for Robin which featured Jo meeting Jean for the first time, but it was so totally not relevant for the main plot that it didn't make it into the final version. Anyone interested in reading it?!?|
|I hold out hopes it will be out before the GGB conference in Warwick, which is mid-August, but Ann and Clarissa aren't promising anything - it's with them now, as Ruth and I having finished the detailed editing. Loads of stages yet, though - A&C have their say (I make necessary changes), Ruth and I check it all again to make sure the changes haven't any knock on effects, then there's proof reading (more changes), typesetting (yet more changes), final error checking.... It goes on and on and always takes longer than you think.
|Tell me about it! And you still miss something after all the checking!|
