he parcel arrived on the day that Kim was coming to stay for a short holiday. A long, wide, flat shape marked ‘Fragile’ and addressed to Emma. Inside the parcel was a painting of an old house.
“Emma it is this house, before it was converted into our Guest House.”
Her mother had taken the picture and was gazing at it with interest.
“The old house painted many years ago. There is another wing in the picture and smooth lawns. A girl in a white dress intent on painting. She seems to be about my age”
