To jump series, Penric, Desdemona, Nikys, Idrene, Rina, and Llewelyn are together. Mother’s-in-law are usually portrayed as antagonists. That’s definitely not my experience.

One of the things that really pleases me about Spirit Ring (to look way ahead) is that Thur does bring his mother back to live with them at the end.  I hope she and Fiametta develop a good relationship!  With their love for Thur in common — and probably future babies — they have a good chance of it.  (Probably important that she and Ruberta get along well, too.)
