Hello, I haven’t actually read any of your books (yet!) but I am VERY curious as to why you named one of your heroines Margaret Huxtable. I am a family historian and have just finished writing an article about five different Margarets in my extended family in Australia. My paternal great aunt Margaret Johnston married a Frederick J A Huxtable in Tasmania in 1886, and her daughter another Margaret Huxtable was born in Tasmania in 1896. The other Margarets in my story are Maggie’s mother, grandmother, great grand mother and great great great aunt; the latter three all born in Scotland. My family’s early Huxtables came from Devon.
