Lady Annabelle Triplet
When we edited the story we introduced the character of Lady Annabelle Triplet. We pictured her as being small but a formidable character. Having reached an advanced age she no longer cares of other people's opinion of her and is prepared to be outrageous just for the fun of it. If anything she was modeled on John's mother who seems to know everything which is going on in the local area.
Lady Triplet used to be a leading member of the Order but who has retired from activity in it. She may have retired but, when necessary, she acts decisively to protect her family.
As the series developed Lady Triplet's charactor changed; but you'll have to read the second book, Dark Secrets, to find out just how. In 'No Secrets' and 'Regret and Retribution' you'll find out just how she manages to achieve so much.
