Prue. ' he said, in an uncertain voice, glancing at her while she poured the tea. 'About having dinner at Killane House…' His eyes pleaded, and Prue resented that, for her mother's sake. Couldn't he spend one evening away from Lucy Killane? Or was he hoping that she and Mrs Killane would become friends? Whatever the truth, one thing was blatantly obvious—her father badly wanted to have dinner at Killane House that evening. ' she asked flatly. ' James Allardyce looked at her, then away, a dark flush in his face.
Her father went ahead, carrying her case up the winding, creaking stair leading to the first floor. She followed slowly, and now it was a sound she remembered. How many times as a child had she lain in bed and listened for the creak of her father's footsteps on the stairs? Farmers went to bed early, rose early—that was something else her mother had hated about the life here. James Allardyce put her suitcase down and Prue stood in the doorway, looking around her at the dark- beamed ceiling, the neat little bed with a pink satin quilt and a pile of crisp white pillows, the polished oak floorboards on which home-made tufted mats were scattered, the chintz curtains sprinkled with apple-blossom print.
It was a peaceful day from then on; Prue unpacked and settled into her old room, then went downstairs and wandered around the house and garden, revisiting her childhood and feeling disorientated—yet quietly happy. Her father found her sitting on the old swing under the apple tree, a sheepdog beside her. Looking up at the sound of his footsteps, Prue asked, 'This isn't old Bess, is it, Dad? ' He grimaced. ' 'Oh, poor old Bess,' Prue said, saddened. 'So, you're Meg, are you? ' James Allardyce watched her ruffling the dog's black and white ears.
