Summary
Analysis
Dixon returns from Milton and takes her place in the Shaws’ household as Margaret’s maid. Margaret enjoys having someone with whom to discuss Milton people and events. In the meantime, Margaret passes her time caring for little Sholto Lennox, renewing a comfortable friendship with Henry Lennox, and looking forward to a possible trip to Spain with Mr. Bell to visit Frederick.
Visiting Helstone seems to have been healing for Margaret, and she begins to find ways of cultivating friendships and making herself of use in London.
