I should have had more faith, but thank you, thank you once again for such a wonderful crop of tales – I doubt I was the only one salivating with anticipation with each new post I read. Which, of course, means I now have to choose the most delicious and, like the punnets of raspberries I have been offered this week, to choose one from several of near-identical quality is hard.
So, I narrowed it to three, stirred them and re-read them, and eventually – at this particular minute – was able to declare it to be Holly, for her hint-of-epic ‘Ties’.
