PROLOGUE

July 15th 1891


Well, here I am in Buckinghamshire, pregnant and unmarried. I'm staying in a small cottage in a small village where no-one knows me except as Mrs George Weybridge, supposedly the widow of an Army officer killed in a riding accident in Ireland.

In my last account I mentioned that Mycroft had a surprise coming to him in just over seven months. Foolishly, I imagined that the prospect of fatherhood would spur him into marriage with a woman who loved him intensely, but the surprise was reserved for me. With amazing efficiency, Mycroft arranged for me to go into the country to have the baby. He would pay for everything, despite my protests.
