A Happy Misunderstanding
Firmly securing the clasp, Anna was struck by the light gleaming from her silver pendant. Caressing it with her finger, she suddenly began to reminisce about the story of her Great-Great-Grandmother Anna, for whom she was named. Grandmother Anna’s father had recently received a new appointment from the King, which led to a very fortuitous marriage for Anna’s older brother. The marriage claimed a new station and reputation for Anna’s family. The new station, though, soon proved challenging for Anna. She was very beautiful, had received a formal education, and had the usual accomplishments to boast. However, with her station being so new, many of the upper crust ladies snubbed their noses at her as she entered ballrooms and social affairs. On the other hand, the men were quite entranced with her. Anna’s father was soon petitioned for her hand in marriage by one of the most eligible and sought-after men in the country. Most ladies would have fawned and simpered over this marriage prospect, but Anna was not impressed. The gentleman appeared to be of a proud and haughty nature. Her father, however, saw something more. The date was set, and the banns were read. Although Anna approached the altar with reserved trepidation, she was soon to discover her intended was beyond reproach. Instead of haughty pride, she found thoughtful consideration. Happy was she that her father had the clearer understanding of her husband’s true nature.
