I read the books about Hobart Floyt and this girl struck me as Baby Fat. Yes, while meant as a pejorative, it morphed as Alacrity Fitzhugh did. Srsly, you had to be there, read the books. Just another book plug for a dead author.
You probably don't even want to know how I pronounced Hecate to myself as I read the books. It was right up there with my sister's books and my horrible didn't get it right pronunciation of her characters names. Srsly Agape? You're just pulling my leg now aren't you?
I was also quite partial to the music.
