Eveline had surprised most of society when she had danced the waltz before getting the nod by the Matrons of the Almanac. Robert hadn’t told her. Either way, last time, the Matrons had only fluttered fans and muttered quietly but no one gave Eveline or Robert the cut direct. It was widely assumed she had already been the permissions when she had danced in polite society abroad.
She had never danced in polite society before England.
Some days, she missed the dancing of her youth.
