The Parker Family Today
Sophia Parker (age 45) – Still beautiful and with the voice of an angel, gentle and dreamy, but not always practical
Michaela (age 24) – upbeat, optimistic, believes in fairy tales and happy endings, sees the humor in things and considers life a grand adventure, terrified of large reptiles ;-)
Jude and Luke (ages 18 and 17) – called “the twins” by the family because they are so much more alike than Trixie and Maggie. They are solid, dependable, love the land and the farm. They take after their father in that they have a hidden romantic side that few others know.
Trixie (age 15) – Trixie is tall, gawky, and angry at the world, her family and especially Michaela. Not only did Mikey leave them, but also she broke Patrick’s heart. Trixie has no idea what she wants to do with her life, but she hates it all right now.
Maggie (age 15) – Her amazing musical ability was evident from a young age. She’s quiet, shy and speaks more often through her compositions, rather than her words. The need for special tutors and schools for Maggie was a major incentive for Michaela leaving the Academy.
Robin (age 13) – Robin is in his own world most of the time. They were afraid he had something really wrong with him for a while, but found out that he was a genius and his mind quite often worked in a way that his words could not keep up. He also needs special tutoring and schools.
Patrick Drummond (age 28) – He works with Luke and Jude with running the farm, and with their hard work and the money Michaela has been able to send, they have been able to expand and modernize. He still loves her, but knows that she needs to choose explore and spread her wings. He does his best to be supportive and loving when she visits and hide the hurt when she leaves. (Melanie’s note – Patrick “belongs” in this family, but I’m not sure how. I think it’s possible that he and Michaela will end up together, but I think it’s also possible that he would wind up with Trixie or even Sophia, which would be a challenge for Michaela to deal with)
