But I hated the manner in which Lacey merely stepped aside while Denis' men tore through (and literally tore apart) his ancestral country home. Now that Donata is by his side, however, she will set things aright by restoring the grandeur of the old home once Lacey's men remove the rotting walls. She helps Lacey see that their destruction is essentially slave labor, since only the bones of the home are worth saving. Ends up, this is fine with Lacey because tearing out the old to make way for the new is pretty much emblematic for his life. The old memories of his hateful father can go out the door with the rest of the rot. Just leave his mother's rooms alone, thank you. It was really nice to see a bit more of this early picture of Lacey's younger years.
And I've really come to enjoy the idea of Donata becoming his wife. They make a good pair. Then with Grenville and Marianne thrown into the mix, we've got quite another good romp here. Visit the countryside to discover the truth of what happened with James Denis' man - and glimpse behind the scenes at both of these powerful men's lives and how the past created the turns that became their present, and that now govern their futures.
