Hi Lori!

I have never been logged into books,google.com, and I have found quite a bit of what I was looking for, but I think it depends on the book. I don't think some have a lot of info.

Oh, well, I'm making progress. It seems I have found it and I can perom a search and find the right page, but I can't view the content on the page. For instance, if I perform a text search the search comes back saying it was found in one place and tells me the page number, but that is all the farther I get. So, now it is probably user error. Gurr! If anyone has ideas or steps to help me, that would be great!

Hmm, wondering, when others are using this resource, are you signed in or does it matter?

Hi all,



I'm going to try and see if I can look in Google Books, but I have not had
much luck. If anyone can take a look and see if they can find the following
book and specifically page 155 I have some questions.



Thanks to all,

being what it is just pttow...'

He was right. It was a great shock to me. My mother was dead.It was, of
course, some few years since I had seen her, but I had never thought of her
dying. She had seemed indestructible... tounortal.

Charles himself broke the news to me.

He came in looking very sombre, threw his hat aside and, taking any hands in
his, led me to a sofa where we sat close together. '" He said: I have sad
news for you, Catherine. You are going to find this hard to bear.' I looked
at him fearfully. 'It is your mother.' 'She is ill?'

He hesitated and I stared at him in horror. 'She has had much to trouble
her. She worked too hard. We none of us are here forever, you know.' 'But
she...'

I know how you cared for her. But she is gone and your home is here now.' I
turned to him and he put his arms about me and held me §against him.

I felt bereft... alone. She had meant so much to me, and although
