Lady Gresham continued to invite the family to dine as she seemed to feel that Jane would soon realize that Mr. Wisley was the appropriate choice for her. Jane bit back many a remark as she knew they would make little difference. Tom was out of her reach and while Mr. Wisley was a kind man, he was not who she wished for.

The meal was an ordeal of propriety until a messenger arrived with a letter from the Dominicans that changed everything in a moment. Cassandra's Robert has died of yellow fever, she's not certain how they made it home through the rain. All she could hear was Cassandra's sobs and all the pain behind them.

The next few days blurred together as she did what she could to comfort Cassandra and all that she wrote was full of pain and hard choices. Mr. Wisley and Tom kept rising in her thoughts before being bound on the page, she was not ready to make that decision yet.
