The different school years would be a problem, too. She could apply to start the term in March, but after her first year, she'd be off schedule for the UK system, and have to wait almost a year for the next year to start there. Then there'd be worrying about whether courses transferred. Changing universities part way through a degree can be tricky even in the same country, and having to re-do work to make up the course requirements can be needed; doing so between countries would be harder.

The point was, and still is, that EBD wanted the Russells out of the way, so she sent them off to Australia and hardly gave them another thought until she had to explain the absence of the two older girls, then of course, she fell back on Marriage with a capital M.

A certain edge when she spoke of Mrs Maynard, certainly, but, after all, not everyone could love Joey.
