    Summary

    And everywhere the fire, lighting sky and sea, dappling across the small bobbing faces lifted to the heavens.

    He had seen Stephen swimming, hadn't he. He had known Stephen would remember how to float, the way Jack had taught him. Feeling sure, he had floundered past, to get about saving as many as he could. After all, he had seen Stephen swimming.

    Hadn't he?

    Summary

    The hair at the nape of her neck was very uneven, Violet discovered through careful exploration with her fingertips, marvelling blindly at it; some of it stuck up in glorious tufts, and rasped daringly against her fingers—some of it was still much too long by far. It was ruined, she realised. The thought was accompanied by an aching swell of joy.

    1871. Violet Holmes steps on the four-fifteen from York as Violet Holmes. She disembarks in London as someone else entirely.

    Summary

    “A woman,” Roberta Meserole had said once, lighting a long black cigarette with a silver lighter, “hides in plain sight. Visibility, Haveline, is our most important asset—”

    She looked up. Around. “Haveline,” she said, “that is not funny.”

    --

    or, how Ankh-Morpork acquired its first female Patrician very, very quietly.
