Proofed the first proof. Changed formatting of footnotes, added, some blank pages, re-did Index, re-worked the Intro. Re-submitted, approved and now...another proof is on the way. Hopefully this will be OK.
[T]he vibe that Middleton gives off is one that says, “I really like my
husband, and his presence is my present”. Not in any sort of “I’ll be
