At sixteen, while vacationing at a New Hampshire camp for girls, she had become involved with a local boy, Donald Ryland.
"I'm Donald Ryland," he said.
Dean thought before answering, wondering how much to admit to Donald Ryland, regressing back to his old detective days.
Donald Ryland returned with his son.
Donnie's entrance seemed to brighten Edith's morning as she clucked over him, cautioning him about the perils of his undertaking in a dozen different ways, all the while ignoring father Donald who'd fled from her bed the night before.
Donald Ryland kept up a nonstop conversation with his son and front seat companion, as they whipped along the highway.
The black diamond expert trails were for the Donald Rylands of the world.
It was obvious Donald, and to a lesser extent Dean, would enjoy steeper, longer and more challenging runs.
Donald, this is Carmen Pulock ... umm, I mean ... what is your name now?
Alex glanced at Donald as he offered a hand to Candice.
To the N.W., was fought in 1411 the great battle between Donald, lord of the Isles, and the royal forces under the earl of Mar.
King Donald (892-900), son of Constantine, died in Forres, not without suspicion of poisoning, and in it King Duff (961-967) was murdered.
Surprisingly, Fred O'Connor, arch fan of any hint of mystery, remained uninterested in the Donald Ryland-Edith Shipton-Jerome Shipton triangle.
Dean found the deep powder beyond his limited abilities and Donald Ryland seemed content to stay with him and ski the packed trails, sometimes cutting off to test the moguls and deeper snow at the trail's edge.
The three third floor rooms contained six ice climbers while Donald Ryland remained in the small first floor quarters.
When they returned later, Donald Ryland was with them, chatting amicably with both of them.
Dean rushed to her side, just as Donald Ryland came out of his room, in time to catch a glance at the departing man who turned and strolled down the stairs to the street.
"Fair enough," Donald Ryland answered.
Donald Ryland led the troupe down the path on the west side of the river.
It was here Donald Ryland planned to tackle a mixed rock and ice climb innocuously called Rosebud.
He motioned down the pathway toward where Donald Ryland and the others were climbing.
Donald is so good with the boy.
Donald thinks the boy should be in school.
Then she added, Donald is so sweet.
She wants to talk to Donald Ryland first.
Edith Shipton moved down the hall, causing Dean to think her destination was his and Cynthia's quarters but she stopped in front the small room occupied by Donald Ryland.
I don't like this business with Edith and Donald Ryland.
Just as Cynthia said it, Donald Ryland appeared behind them, still in his bathrobe, much to her gross embarrassment.
He looked up to see a shocked Donald Ryland step out of his room.
And now she's coerced Donald Ryland into helping.
Donald Ryland tipped his wool cap to her as he entered, still dripping snow on the kitchen floor.
Last to arrive was Donald Ryland.
Dean wandered up the penstock trail, the path he and Cynthia followed earlier, where Donald Ryland had climbed.
Cynthia was still sleeping when a speeding Ford Explorer passed them and Dean caught sight of Donald Ryland, with his son Donnie sitting beside him.
Two unmarked State cars were parked in front of Bird Song, along with, to Dean's surprise, Edith's rental car and Donald Ryland's Explorer.
As he finished the conversation, Donald Ryland emerged from his room, looking as if his dog had died.
Donald Ryland, although I haven't quite figured why.
Donald is out ice climbing, too.
Edith is, as them English novels say, 'in seclusion'—probably plotting how to wrap up Donald and take him home.
He considered Donald Ryland.
Donald brought Donnie up to meet me, before the cops dragged him back down here.
She said the wedding is off and Donald is staying with her!
It's just between Donald and me.
No separate room needed, I'll bunk with deceiving Mr. Donald Ryland and make sure that hissy butch doesn't jump his bones or she'll land on me.
Donald talked about some sort of joint custody when he brought him up to meet me.
Donald Ryland and Franny were on the front porch.
The Quincys are off somewhere and Franny and Donald took Donnie to a motel.
Donald Ryland and Franny Mulligan were checking out this evening, as soon as he returned with Donnie, followed by the Quincy sisters scheduled departure in the morning.
It was Donald Ryland, Franny and Donnie.
She told Franny that Donald had dumped her as his fiancée when he never considered doing any such thing.
The only other party involved with Shipton who was an ice climber was Donald Ryland.
How's Donald and Donnie?
Donald isn't coming to the lawyer's office because he doesn't want to see Shipton if he doesn't have to.
I haven't smoked since I decided not to kill Donald Ryland and let him marry me!
Dean jogged up the hill to ice park, hoping to find Penny and Mick, and perhaps Donald Ryland, before confronting Jerome Shipton.
"Donald Ryland said so," Fred answered.
Everything we knew about Edith Shipton came either from her directly or through Donald Ryland.
The legend with regard to the origin of the name Napier was given by Sir Alexander Napier, eldest son of John Napier, in 1625, in these words: "One of the ancient earls of Lennox in Scotland had issue three sons: the eldest, that succeeded him to the earldom of Lennox; the second, whose name was Donald; and the third, named Gilchrist.
She nearly collided with Donald Ryland as she practically skipped from the room.
