Footnotes

  • "One morning when we were visiting Capri, Bob left me sitting on the hotel terrace reading a book. He said he was going for a walk. Rather a long time elapsed and I began to wonder where he was. Then he returned carrying a shopping bag stuffed with newspapers, plus a cream box. This he gave to me. 'Some flowers for you,' he said offhandedly. Flowers indeed! Multicolored sapphire flowers set in a gold and diamond necklace. What a thrilling gift to receive in the middle of the morning, and given to me in such a lovely, casual way, and with much love from my husband."

    Gift from Robert Bradford in 2004 on publication of "Emma's Secret". Purchased from Alberto e Lina, Capri.
