Companion to A Double Affair

26.   A Double Affair. Begins with the wedding of Miss Merriman (Merry) and Mr. Choyce. There are parties at the Deanery, at Father Fewling's in Greshamsbury, and at "Glycerine Cottage" in Northbridge, where Miss Hopgood, Miss Crowder, Mr. and Mrs. Downing, Mr. Highmore, and Miss Dunsford meet to discuss France and plan Miss Dunsford's trip to the Riviera. Edith Graham is back from America, still unsettled about her life and rather pettish; she is disgruntled when the same three admirers from Never Too Late alternately ignore and lecture her. George Halliday and John-Arthur Crosse are also attracted to a pair of granddaughters of the Deanery, Jane and Grace Crawley. Much interest is shown in pigs, and Holdings Goliath wins the Barsetshire Agricultural. Mrs. Halliday is feeling rather lost in her widowhood, but a visit to old school friend Mrs. Dunsford helps her to adjust as she goes trips to the Riviera and to London. Edith returns to Barchester to finish a course in estate management; Lord William Harcourt, young clerical son of the Duke of Towers, is introduced and shows interest in Edith, and the book ends with two marriages arranged and the prospect of a third. George wins Jane, John-Arthur wins Grace. Low-key, relaxing, and refreshing.

Character, description and book abbreviations

Adams, Heather

b. 1928. Daughter of Sam Adams. First seen as a large, awkward, red-faced, graceless student at the Hosiers' Girls' Foundation School. Infatuated with Freddy Belton, but Freddy was definitely not attracted to red-haired, pimply, lumpish Heather, despite having pulled her out of an ice-covered pond. Great mathematical ability. Mrs. Belton and Miss Bunting helped improve her social graces out of all recognition. She won a maths scholarship to Cambridge, developed into a capable, intelligent, "Lucy Marlingish" person who helped her father in his business. Married Ted Pilward, son of Hogglestock brewing magnate. Two children, elder was Edward Belton Pilward.

Adams, Samuel

b. 1902. At first appearance he was a widower with daughter Heather. At first he was definitely "one of the people" and proud of it, and of his rise from poverty to wealth and power as owner of iron works and rolling mills at Hogglestock. He was loud, flamboyant, socially inept and convinced that money can do anything. He improved greatly by association with county families, especially Mrs. Belton. Married Lucy Marling (almost as overwhelming a personality as himself), bought the Old Bank House at Edgewood, had daughters Amabel Rose and Leslie, and son William. Became solidly conservative and used his money to foil unnecessary "progress" and liberal inroads. Leased part of Pomfret Towers to use as a central office. Defeated Sir Robert Fielding as Labour candidate for Parliament, but became a Conservative and joined Church of England.

Originally lived at Stories in Pomfret Madrigal (used as a nursery school for evacuees during war.) One gathers that Mrs. Brandon, along with Mrs. Morland, is something of a self-portrait of Mrs. Thirkell as she saw herself.

Beautiful hands, graced by a diamond given to her by Aunt Sissie Brandon because she was just the sort of woman Fred Brandon would have liked.
