mountain peak. He heard the song
of birds snd the gentle lowing of
the cows. He slept in a hammock
for hours, lulled by the sweet
breezes that swept through the
pines. He walked longer distances
every day, regaining health and
strength as the summer advanced.

of the Beeks— Margie they called
her— flitted around the place like a
slim, bright eyed bird. Sometime*
she read to Thorley aa he lay in the
hammock, and sometimes he read to
her, but the themes he chose led by

of love, and whenever she gained a
clew to the thread o f his narrative
she would fly away with flushed
cheeks and eves hidden behind a
soft sweep o/ long lashes. Then
