Chapter 28

Kisses and Drawers

  • Jamie decides to tend to the tenants so Ian can rest his leg. 
  • At one property, he has to help unstick a water wheel, so he strips down to his father's flannel drawers and dives in. 
  • While he's submerged, Grannie MacNab chats up Claire. 
  • She asks Claire to ask Jamie to take on her grandson, Rabbie MacNab, so as to get him away from his drunk, abusive father.
  • They're interrupted by an English watch, but Grannie MacNab manages to distract them while Jamie stays hidden underwater.
