Could she fulfill such a condition?
Only when she arrived on the island did Nora learn that part of her inheritance from Uncle Jake depended on her marrying a Manxman.

Unfortunately, Juan Cregeen was the one who attracted her most. He seemed to have no visible means of support...and was a confirmed bachelor.
