in consequence of the missive, Joanna Trollope's modernisation of S&S, penned by Kathleen Glancy
While I thought this was rather clunky, Debra White Smith's update on the story did at least explain why Edward stayed with Lucy. In this modernization, Edward had dumped Lucy once, and she took up with an abuser (this Lucy was also determined to be a "kept woman" rather than work for a living). Edward then took her back again out of guilt. It rings quite true for me because I have a friend who has done exactly that. I am curious to see what Joanna Trollope will do with it.
The money issue could be explained via imprudent spending (too many credit cards, etc.) and, as you pointed out, college debts.
