From a side character: what gives you joy in life?
Michaels, Duncan’s valet, has volunteered to answer this one.
Michaels: I enjoy being in town, where we can gossip and be on the inside of all society’s flow of information. Being in the country is so dull by comparison. I like to be where the bustle is . . . And where there are better chances for stealing kisses from cute maids in neighboring townhouses.
