Bridgid had done all she could do. It had taken two years, but she finally had the book Kitt had written about her time in Morgan. Now she had Mister John’s promise he would read it. She knew this was the only chance she had in getting the two of them back together.
John spent the night reading the book and remembering what that summer had been like. He was reminded about the near-tragedy that had brought Kitt into their lives. He remembered how good she was with the girls; how the girls, Bridgid even Timothy had all fallen in love with her. He had to admit that he, too, had fallen in love with her. And Kitt had seemed to love all of them.
It was definitely interesting reading about all that had happened from her point of view. He was pleased to read that she had enjoyed all the trips into Morgan and Boise. He was amazed to read about all she had done with the girls and with Bridgid. He re-lived their first dinner and night of dancing at the Morgan Arms, and was relieved to see she had enjoyed it as much as he had.
It came as quite a surprise to read what Kitt had put up with from his own sister-in-law, Maribeth. He was startled to hear what Lani was like, and hoped that was just ‘literary license’. He was not surprised about Patti.
He had had no idea what had been going on ‘behind the scenes’ and how Kitt had quietly put up with all of it.
It was uncomfortable reading about the nights dancing, and realizing how he had made Kitt feel. He had blamed Kitt when things went wrong; never dreaming his sister-in-law had orchestrated everything.
He hated reading about how bad things got, and knowing he was to blame for thinking the worst of her. He could not believe, now, what he had put her through.
By the time he was finished with the book, he knew he would have to try to make things right for her. He wondered if she could ever forgive him. He knew he didn’t deserve it, but he had to try – not only for himself, but for the girls, Bridgid, Timothy; all of them.
The next day he enlisted Bridgid’s help to try to win Kitt back. It was not smooth sailing. He knew she had every right to try to keep her distance. He knew she was afraid of being hurt again. But he was not above using his daughters, Bridgid and Timothy, to remind Kitt how much she had loved them all. He would do whatever he could to try to get her back.
He also had to ‘right’ some wrongs that had been done to Kitt. He had no idea that, in trying to make things easier for the girls, he would make things worse for Kitt.
He could only hope that, if she lived, she would want him back; would want to be part of the family again.
