Chapter 8 is in the MW. I just realized that on the previous two chapters, I neglected to enter "Ready for PL". Sorry!

In reading these old biographies (which I love), I can never figure out what the rationale is for where they choose to end a chapter. It always seems so random!

sect 6 & 7

I tend to think time restrictions play a part with writers.

Margaret was an amazing woman. :clap:

Thank you!
Chapter nine is now in the MW. Interesting chapter, but with all the flubs I made in the "rough draft," I am delighted to be finally through with editing so I can kiss it goodbye! 8-)

Thank you (merci). Chapter 11 is in MW, wherein Margaret is saying things in French to people with French names. I very vaguely remember doing well in my French classes in high school - but since I graduated high school in 1974 ( :shock: ) ... it's a little bit of a stretch now!

I sympathize! My last French class was Freshman year in college, a little bit longer ago than yours. :wink: I find Forvo a useful site for native pronunciations, especially in languages where I have no clue about pronunciation. You might give it a try next time, but giving it your best shot is perfectly acceptable here. :D

We are all in the same boat French wise (mine started in 7th grade).
As we say in Brooklyn, "you done good".

Thanks so much!
Could not do without Forvo and Emma saying! But even with help, I note that the French r I used to roll so well has turned into some kind of rogue Italian old lady thing (like me :D ). Luckily, Margaret is moving on to Italy now!
