Manse Everard's Relationships With Women

Relationship with Janne Floris begins and ends in "Star Of The Sea."

Meets Wanda Tamberly in "The Year Of The Ransom."

Relationship with Bronwen begins and ends in "Ivory, And Apes, And Peacocks."

Maintains contact with Wanda in The Shield Of Time.

Relationship with Wanda has begun in "Death And The Knight."

There are six earlier stories. Thus, Everard's relationships occur in the second half of the series.

The order of writing is not the chronological order of fictitious events. Janne is introduced in "Star Of The Sea" but the relationship is ended to make way for Everard meeting Wanda in the already published "The Year Of The Ransom."

Everard and Wanda are married in "A Slip In Time" by SM Stirling. I am not sure that Poul Anderson would have continued the series in this way.

(Today has been a wet Sunday across England and none of my family wanted to drive into the country so there has been extra time for posting.)

Kaor, Paul!

While I agree we can't be sure that Poul Anderson would have Manse Evevard and Wanda Tamberly marrying, their relationship was strong and serious enough that it was reasonable of S.M. Stirling showing them as married in "A Slip in Time."
