There's a bit where Maria Marani is discussed. She is leaving Joey's house and going to be married to a Walter Maclaren, who I think is at the San for TB prevention. (I may have imagined this.) Conveniently a job appears at the San for him as the man they have is 'chasing nurses and spending too much time at the Casino'. LOL.
Can anyone please help me find the reference and also tell me where the rather incongruous Casino is based? I am really hoping this is in Switzerland but I can't remember when Maria left Joey - it must have been before Beth Chester arrived?

Thanks!

Maria comes after Beth - she arrives in Problem. Originally, Gottfried and Gisela were meant to be coming too, but they got forgotten about. I'm pretty sure that the casino is in Interlaken. I did look this up for a short Christmas drabble I wrote about Maria, but have managed to forget in the two months since :lol: - but I'll have it written down somewhere so will look later!

Walter was the Embury boys' tutor. Winnie had hundreds of sons, but presumably the youngest was about to start school, so Walter needed a new job.

It's in Coming of Age - the chapter where Madge has arrived in Switzerland and Joey is telling her about Maria's engagement:

Quote:
Oh, that’s all settled. He’s out here as a preventative measure, though he’s all right now. When the kids go to school, he’s going to try to get a secretarial job out here. Jack says it’ll be safer, and they’re toying with the idea of appointing him as Registrar at the San the year after next when Mr. Grier’s appointment ends. He’s not too satisfactory, that lad. Runs after all the pretty nurses, and always off to Interlaken and the Casino. He’s been warned that if this goes on they’ll break his contract.”
