Evidently Esme's career was a play from her point of view. She, like Beatrice, was an actress. Like Beatrice, Esme married a man she didn't really love. And just like Beatrice (I think), she has abandoned this man and all her fake life to be with the man she loves. The difference is that Esme didn't kill Jerome in the process.
"There are certain individuals who think they know what Lemony Snicket’s books are about. They are under the impression they understand who he is. They believe they know what to expect. In fact, the truth is far worse than such people ever imagined." - 13 SHOCKING SECRETS you’ll wish you never knew about LEMONY SNICKET
Did she ruin her career, though? The Daily Punctilio merely reported that she was kidnapped (TVV p. 4), and by TPP she's able to appear openly in her own character again. But Jean Lucio is quite correct in stating that Esmé was willing to give up a great deal for love - and, I suspect, for fashion.
I don't think she really loved Olaf because I don't think she was capable of loving another person, not even Carmelita. I think she just wanted a life of crime more than she wanted her career.
Faith is being sure about what we hope for, being convinced about things we do not see. Hebrews 11:1 For God so loved the world that he gave his only-begotten Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16

jeanlucio10: I would like to read now a short story written by Lemony Snicket about how VFD helped to defeat Nazism. This would be interesting to introduce the subject to children.

jeanlucio10: "Anne Frank - the Diary of a Young Girl",could be the book club's third book? I haven't read this one either.

Terry Craig: I think the historical events are interesting enough on their own, and don't need to be taught just to introduce children to Lemony Snicket.

jeanlucio10: You're right Terry.

jeanlucio10: This request of mine was a selfish appeal from my heart, disguised as a request on behalf of the children.

jeanlucio10: I just read a 2013 report about your comment 𝓑𝓮𝓪𝓻, so I can understand the meaning. Through this report, I realized that there are people more self-centered than me.
