Comment on South Africa

  1. That's really interesting, that is a good point, I hadn't thought of it like that. I was more focused on the consequences, a "respectable looking" woman (married or not) in her early 30's, is going to attract more attention than a man of any age or appearance, hooking up with a stranger in a pub in the early 60's, So even though the opportunity presents itself more easily for Shelagh, the risk is far greater. I really fear for her at the moment.

    1. I think if she stayed in or around Poplar (where she is known) to seek out this affair, then she would have been discovered easily. However, in my mind, she would have gone some place far away. There, she is able to slip her ring off just like her husband.

      For Patrick, however, I imagine him burying himself in his work, making time for his children at the end of the day.
