Miss Bradwardine was but seventeen; yet, at the last races of the county town of ------, upon her health being proposed among a round of beauties, the Laird of Bumperquaigh, permanent toastmaster and croupier of the Bautherwhillery Club, not only said More to the pledge in a pint bumper of Bourdeaux, but, ere pouring forth the libation, denominated the divinity to whom it was dedicated, ``the Rose of Tully-Veolan;'' upon which festive occasion, three cheers were given by all the sitting members of that respectable society, whose throats the wine had left capable of such exertion.

It was noon when the two friends stood at the top of the pass of Bally-Brough. ``I must go no farther,'' said Fergus Mac-Ivor, who during the journey had in vain endeavoured to raise his friend's spirits. ``If my cross-grained sister has any share in your dejection, trust me she thinks highly of you, though her present anxiety about the public cause prevents her listening to any other subject. Sir Richard Fettiplace died in 1615, leaving Elinor a widow. Religious animosities played a large part in most of the atrocities committed in any of the three kingdoms during the wars. xxxThe impact of the wars on property was very significant, especially in Ireland and Scotland: in the former kingdom, this involved "the confiscation and redistribution of 40 per cent of the land of Ireland from (Irish) Catholic to (English) Protestant proprietors"; in the latter, "the greater part of the estates of the Scottish aristocracy."

Pushing Ice is a beautiful stand alone book that tells of the first humans to travel beyond the solar system, a simple mining vessel caught up in the wake of an alien craft just passing through our little corner of the universe. The main whinges were the same as in the the first novel - odd names, a rather Jane Austen-esque "marriage market" idea of a samurai princess's life plus a persistent and irritating spelling of "naginata" as " nagatina". Because Ada was born with a clubfoot, her mother is ashamed of her and never lets her leave the apartment, abusing her both physically and emotionally.

Now, I don't think it is an accident that the Three Senior Lords should be associated with the Spirit Gates. The wages of the men amounted to fifteen shillings, so that each tree cost seven shillings and sixpence. There would be as little gallantry in such an aggression, as in striking a prisoner on parole.

I really need to add Timothy Findley's books to my wishlist.

I'm sure loyalties went to those that used the least brutality for all of them behaved brutally toward their captives. The slicing and castration bits are left out and instead Wallace is beheaded after he screams “Freedom!” one last time. And he expects you will also say, you are sorry for the cloud, and no man shall hereafter ask whether it descended from the hill to the valley, or rose from the valley to the hill; for they never struck with the scabbard who did not receive with the sword; and woe to him who would lose his friend for the stormy cloud of a spring morning!'' To this the Baron of Bradwardine answered, with suitable dignity, that he knew the chief of clan Ivor to be a well-wisher to the King, and he was sorry there should have been a cloud between him and any gentleman of such sound principles, ``for when folks are banding together, feeble is he who hath no brother.''

But, in Scotland, there exists not the least approach to the disease, which it seems necessary to anticipate in so desperate a manner; for the apprehended runs on Scotch banks, by the holders of small notes, have never taken place, and from the assigned reasons, are never likely to do so.
