SUNDAY, February 24th at 1:30pm: TEA TIME with Mary Russell & Sherlock Holmes
The Marriage of Mary Russell, a short story by author Laurie R. King.
Though she cannot entirely discount the effects of the head
injuries they were both suffering at the time, Mary Russell is delighted by
Sherlock Holmes’s proposal of marriage. After all, they have become
partners-in-crime, and she has recently come into her inheritance: what remains
but to confirm the union with her mentor-turned-partner through a piece of
paper? Russell’s pragmatic side tells her to head straight to the registry
office—until Holmes surprises her with a sentimental wish to be married in the
chapel of his ancestral manor. There’s just the small issue of ownership: the
house is not exactly his, and he is most definitely not welcome there. Of
course, such obstacles have never deterred Sherlock Holmes before, and they
certainly won’t keep him from concocting an elaborate scheme to evade angry
dogs and armed butlers—all in the name of wedded bliss.
