"This was my mother's, " Olivia spoke as she handed Jane a pearl necklace. "Which belonged to her mother who came from Ireland in 1820."

"That is beautiful, " awed Josie as it was her turn to hold the precious necklace. "Will Mary wear it on her wedding day?"

"Of course, it is what our grandmother would have wanted."

"How about you?" Josie asked as she handled the necklace with extreme care. "When will you be married?"

Olivia sighed melancholically. "I don't know. But I can assure you, it will be a long time before it happens. I have plans of my own before I get married."

"You do? Mother says if you don't marry, you have a future of being an old spinster until you die."

"Is that so?" asked Olivia struggling to hold back her laughter. "Well this old spinster will go to Mexico and learn the beautiful Spanish tongue."

"Who are you going to go to Mexico with if you're going to be unmarried?" Josie asked handing her the necklace carefully.

"Well, by myself I suppose."

"On your own? Unchaperoned?"

Olivia let out a giggle unable to contain herself.


Olivia brought her hand to her hurting head. She did not want to argue with her sister about women too being a colossal part of society. That women are allowed to speak their minds and have their own opinions, no matter who liked it or not, Mary never seemed to understand their part in the new world. "I apologize, Mary. You are right, I shouldn't have spoken to him that way and I will apologize to him as well."

Mary smiled satisfied. "Apology accepted. Now, will you give me a hand with my hair? Maggie was useless when I told her how I wanted it done."

"Of course, " replied Olivia wishing that her sister would push her frivolous concerns aside and opened her eyes to what was aching Mr. Nicholas Clark.
