Inside this Book – ‘Since our sister Su-Niang’s marriage to their son, we are no longer at variance with the Hu family! I wish to visit, and Grandmother has forbidden me! As though I was ten years old!’ ‘Yes, but that does not mean that you have to stay forbidden,’ said Phryne. ‘You are the head of the family, you know.’ ‘I cannot disobey her,’ said Lin, lowering the volume a trifle. ‘That would shame her. She is terribly venerable and what she will tell the ancestors about me if I cause her to have an apoplexy doesn’t bear thinking about. We would all come down with leprosy. Or typhoid.

She could not understand what had happened to Eliza. When she had been called Beth, she had been Phryne’s little sister, to be protected and fought for. Now she was not only not little, but she was combative enough for two. Three, even.
