Dear Maryrose Wood,
I finished The Unmapped Sea, early Monday morning and I have just one or two little questions for you.
2. Are you kidding me? Please, say you are kidding me!
Oh and this one.
3. How could you do this to your loyal readers?
Sorry. I do have another question. It's actually the most important question.
4. When is the next book coming out? I hope it will arrive next week, because I can handle this sense of fraughtitude for maybe a week. But not much longer than that. Then I explode and start telling people what happened. Or not.
The Incorrigible children and Miss Lumley accompany Sir Frederick and Lady Constance and the Ashton household to the beach at Brighton - in January. The doctor ordered it. But this works to Miss Lumley's advantage because the only person who has any clue as to the nature of the Ashton family curse lives in Brighton. Coincidence? I think not. Time is running out. Lady Constance will bring forth generation #5 of cursed Ashton's in May. The curse must be dispelled before the baby arrives or..... (falls into a Lady Constance-ish swoon!!!)
Alexander, Beowulf and Casseiopeia meet the Babushnikov children. Isn't that sweet? (Simper and smile.) They go skating and share dinners together and visit a most unusual Museum and it's like a walk in the sunshine... A very cold, argument-wracked walk in the winter blustery sunshine - with clouds.
And that is really all I can tell you. Don't ask. If you need to know more you can read the book yourself. I am returning my copy to the Bethlehem Area Public Library this weekend.
