Sophia de la Cerda Posted May 2, 2016 Share Posted May 2, 2016 The Toledo Residence Like most rooms in her new residence, the library was larger than the one in her previous house, but fell quite short of immense. Books in several different languages lined the shelves on three of the walls and there was a desk and chair in one corner. There was also a small table and two comfortable chairs upholstered in dark leather that usually sat in front of the fireplace. A longer table stood along the one wall that was not covered by bookcases. Today, Sophia had instructed her servants to move all three chairs to the long table and they had also brought in two chairs from the drawing room. If Lord Maldon brought his three siblings, they would all have places to sit. She had selected a few German books that were not that difficult to read and they were arranged in a stack in the center of the table. The Christmas tree sat beside it. It was small enough that it could be moved from room to room and since they would be discussing German, it seemed appropriate to have it here. The petite Baroness stood in front of the fireplace, watching the flickering flames and letting her thoughts wander aimlessly. When her guests arrived, a servant would bring them to the library where she was waiting for them. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
