G like the feeling that had nearly broken her heart when, long ago, they
told her that her mother had gone to heaven. A great wave of bitterness
passed over her sinking heart. She turned away, that her sister might
not see her face. "Christie," said Effie, in a minute or two, "I think
we ought to go home. There will be some things to do; and if Annie and
