    What I loved about Teresa was that she wasn't afraid to be either strong or feminine around Richard. That she knew he wouldn't hold either against her; it was refreshing.

    That he treated her like gold when she was around, yet let her handle her problems? Great! Now, Ol' Obadiah was a special case, and even Richard needed help with that!

    You're right, they were a great couple. They have a lot of chemistry. And you're right about Teresa not being afraid to be feminine around Richard. I even think there is a line in "Sharpe's Enemy" along the lines of, "You always let me be what I was. That's why I loved you so much."

    In the new episode Sharpe's Peril, Richard mentions that his daughter is with Teresa's family, but he doesn't say where they are.

    Yes, I think it's high time Cornwell wrote "Sharpe's Neglect", taking up Antonia's search for her father across Flanders, Portugal and Spain around 1830 or so. How COULD Sharpe just forget about her? He needs a demned good threshing.
