(view spoiler)[A type O mother and a type AB father cannot have a type AB offspring. This is so basic biology I didn't believe how the characters could not know that. But the story moved swiftly along with the notion of Jules being Anthony's daughter, as if this were simply true. Is it really so or they will find out that Jules cannot be Marge and Anthony's daughter? Is it possible the author made thus huge a mistake? (hide spoiler)]

Leslie <spoiler>As someone said, it was B negative - at least in the edition that person and I read. Somehow, especially with the upper classes, I doubt that the issue of blood type would ever come up, unless there was a serious illness in the family and the doctors were running tests. I personally find it hard to believe that Madge would have been able to foist her child by another man onto someone she married when she was already pregnant, when her engagement had been recently broken off. Hetheridge vaguely thinks that she must have gotten married "less than six months" after the engagement was broken, but unless she got pregnant at their final encounter and started in with Malcolm almost immediately, that would have been a mighty premature infant, unless she already had Malcolm on a string and had been sleeping with him as well.</spoiler>
