Nice, I like the idea of Raines keeping Kyle as a pet at the Dragon House. Parallels keeping Ethan at the forest house. I think the Harriet stuff was in 1987 though.
Little thing but in my family the phrase "born in a barn" is a colloqiallism for being rude or unmannered. So it's a nice opportunity for a little pun or self-depreciating joke for Emily there. ;-)
Thank you for your review, Mariel.
Regarding the "Harriet stuff", according to the chronology I consulted, Kyle was arrested for the kidnap of Harriet Tashman at June 3rd, 1983 (http://phq.pretendercentre.com/file-kyle.php).
Here in Portugal, the phrase "born in a barn" can also have a double meaning, almost similar to the one you say your family has. In this story, however, the phrase was to be taken literally. But it is a good pun.Reviewer: MarieL Anonymous [Report This]
