Isabel’s Well-Educated Mind

24 Jan

Isabel Archer could have joined our book club.

It had lately occurred to her that her mind was a good deal of a vagabond, and she had spent much ingenuity in training it to a military step and teaching it to advance, to halt, to retreat, to perform even more complicated manœuvers, at the word of command.  chapter 3


It sounds like Isabel’s mind is a little more well-trained than mine which occasionally goes AWOL.
