From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
If walkways could talk, this one would tell a story about a really angry Dedlock who cursed the family with...the sound of footsteps whenever something is going wrong. Um, yeah, that's not really all that scary a curse. But still, the curse comes true at last, and the walkway under the windows of Chesney Wold constantly sounds like someone is walking on it from the moment Lady Dedlock figures out that Esther is her child. A scary premonition of her death? Raindrops? You be the judge.
