Crispin: Cross of Lead Chapter 35

By Avi

Chapter 35

  • Bear and Crispin enter the Green Man, and Crispin describes the interior.
  • They meet the Widow Daventry, who runs the inn and clearly already knows Bear quite well, which makes Crispin jealous.
  • In their conversation, it comes out that Lord Furnival has died at home of wounds received in the French wars—the black-draped ribbons around town are for him.
  • Because Lord Furnival has no legal heirs, all his property goes to Lady Furnival, unless an illegitimate son (read: a son whose mother was not married to Lord Furnival) shows up and can enforce his claim or Lady Furnival marries again.
  • No one thinks Lady Furnival is likely to do that because it would require her to give up her new power.
