Face the Music by Maria Darnoult
by Maria Darnoult
On the night that 1899 became 1900, 19-year-old Hannah had a futuristic dream in which she met her own grand-daughter. The strangely dressed woman told her that she would marry the headmaster, William Waverley. He was among the gentry of their small town in the Isle of Man, prestigious, important, even flamboyant, but he was older than Hannah’s papa! It was so ludicrous that, at first, she dismissed the idea, but little by little, over several years, her dream became a day-dream, and then a fixation, a passion, and no other man would do. Surrounded by bitter resentment, they resolved that, whatever would happen, they would ‘Face The Music’ together.
