Idyls in Drab (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Idyls in DrabHen the train slowed before drawing into the station at Fitchburg, Sister Althea took up her bag from the floor, and began to collect her paper parcels into her lap, as if she were going to leave the car. Then she sat gripping the bag to her side and staring out into the night, blotched everywhere with the city lights and the railway signals - red and green and orange. From time to time she looked round over her shoulder into the car, up and signals - red and green and orange. From time to time she looked round over her shoulder into the car, up and down the aisle, and again set her face towards the window, and held it so rigidly, to keep her self from taming any more, that it hurt her neck.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
