A surprise wedding causes a rift in friendships. Edward Bell is revealed as a thief and tries to flee with Peggy as his escort. A great train wreck occurs; Harry, who has run away from school, is found on the brink of death by Miss Galindo and the Reverend Hutton; William Buxton is badly injured. The Assembly Rooms are returned to their former glory for a Christmas celebration at which Miss Matty receives a wonderful gift. Written by

Did You Know?
Have you seen the gorse?
There was not a flower to be had. I should not have plucked it otherwise. The poor twigs look so stark. Miss Matty once told me that there was a saying... "When gorse is out of blossom, then kissing is out of fashion."
This room is so warm that they mistake the month for spring. And one of them bears a single golden bud.
