Yes, there are references to the violence she saw while growing up on the island, and her savage father's "open capacity for brutal action." Victorians would have said that the violence was in her blood.

"savage father"--p 707
father's "open capacity for brutal action"--p 229
(I give my thanks to Amazon's search feature.)

I hadn't though of using the Amazon search feature! Thanks for the reminder! :cool:
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming -
Wow! What a ride!

Well, you know how it goes. "I know I read something about Miss Temple's father on the cruise, somewhere between Puerto Vallarta and Mazatlan, so that must have been toward the end of the book." :blush: I didn't have post-it notes with me, so I was really glad to see that I could search on Amazon.

Somewhere between Puerto Vallarta and Matzatlan? :lol: Now there's a bookmark!
