When Thomas had settled into his first class train compartment
he opened his copy of The Sphere. His heart missed a beat - here, depicted by an artist, was his dream, the dream that he had hoped for by marrying Marianne. A jolly blazing Lines/Triang fire, and his beautiful bride and himself relaxing in front of it. Things had begun to go wrong from the start. Basil's defection. Princess Tai Liu had been savage, to say the least of it, when evicted from the Bridal Suite. Michelle's capable hands still showed the scars. Marianne's wanderings of the grounds, Her insatiable appetite for her "salon evenings" He sighed heavily as he closed the page on the idyllic scene. Was it his umbrella that was causing the rift between this so newly married man and wife?

Wonderful illustration - could definitely be one of the rooms in a Lines/Triang.

"A jolly blazing Lines/Triang fire", gosh yes...... that one would certainly enhance any room.

Oh this made me laugh. Poor Thomas.

He might be right about the umbrella - Isla has never had family either.

Well, the umbrella could make things a bit awkward in the bedroom!
