Nancy found that particularly applicable to their situation. Naming houses was one of Nancy’s little quirks. Another was collecting small boulders, which she used for building walls around the gardens they always planted whenever they moved to a new residence. Over the twenty-five years she and Derek had been married, wherever they lived, Nancy always built rock walls around their gardens. Now that she was into middle age, the children nagged her about it. Wrestling with outsized rocks, they argued, was not a hobby particularly conducive to her continued good health.

Nancy’s first husband had been charming and handsome, but he had also been immature, cruel, and irresponsible. Derek, in contrast, was everything that Ian had not been: He was kind and conscientious, solid and dependable. It didn’t matter to Nancy that he was almost old enough to be her father. That merely added to his allure. After Ian, she appreciated maturity in a mate. The details of Derek’s first marriage are a closely held family secret. All that is known to outsiders is that his first wife was a New Zealander and that she returned to her native country soon after they were divorced, leaving the children in Derek’s custody.
