Barb, you always have interesting ideas. I am not sure desire for dominance was Jenny’s only drive in this matter. I believe she truly loved Jamie and felt overprotective of him given their history. But there was also the matter of Claire herself. She seemed such a mysterious being, different in so many ways, who had knowledge of things no woman did in those times. Think Jenny couldn’t bring herself to trust Claire and that mistrust got even more intense in Echo where Claire felt a need to hide in Jamie’s study just to be out of Jenny’s way. But whatever the reason, she had no right to run Jamie’s life.
