So is meeting your Willoughby similar to Napoleon facing his Waterloo?
It sure seems that way... no matter what story you read it in. If it's (he's) too good to be true, is it likely that it (he) is? All evidence seems to point that way. Have we all, or will we all meet our Willoughby? Thankfully, my story has turned out happier than I deserve and I don't mind gloating over it.
The Three Weismmanns of Westport is very well written, so honest, it is just painful, but in an oddly good way - if that makes any sense at all. Which it probably doesn't.
