Singleton escorted Harriet out for a quadrille. Hartford left, taking the three young men he had introduced with him. Joanna swallowed a surge of guilt. She would have to quiz him about his latest protégés. " asked Lord Ellisham, relaxing into a more natural stance. "Very much, though I doubt most positions would prove this congenial. Since I must accompany Harriet, I get to attend all manner of entertainments, and have even received permission to enter the sacred halls of Almack's tomorrow. " "Once Harriet has no further need of me, I will take up a post as governess to Sir Brandon Paxton's daughters—Lord Wicksfield convinced him to hold it for me.
London gossip already bored her to tears, for conversation at the vicarage had always been lively. Yet she should not be surprised. Society itself was shallow, so it would naturally elevate a shallow man to its apex. And her personal preferences didn't count, for she would never belong here. Harriet's ignorance fit this world better than her own education. She tried to turn her thoughts to duty, but her eyes continued to stray toward Lord Sedgewick. His quizzing glass remained in constant use, punctuating his words, magnifying any disapproval, judging each person who joined the crowd around him.
Lord Sedgewick's voice again cut through the music—or did everyone pause when he opened his mouth, creating a pocket of silence? When music again drowned out his voice, Lady Debenham picked up the thread. "Once he accepted Brumford, Lutterworth should never have brought his daughter to town. No girl in her right mind would prefer so dour a man to a fashionable dandy. " Joanna ignored her. The tale had been on every tongue since she had arrived in London. Lord Sedgewick's repetition confirmed that he was merely another shallow society creature.
