As the years went on, it seemed better to him to let. Jennifer up with the Grant children, where her naturally vital spirits would not have to be curbed for the sake of the quiet which her mother must have. The childhood was a happy one in spite of the fact that the Grants met with adversity common to people of their economic position in that period of industrial revolution in England.

definitely she is dangerous," Brooks agreed, and went out. In the bedroom Natalie opened the suitcase and unpacked swiftly.

It was fun, she told herself gleefully, as she selected from the supplies the first meal she was to prepare for her busband. And she all but held her breath when she heard Brooks' footsteps on the little veranda and entering the living room. Brooks watched his wife as she spread a gaily patterned cloth on the little oak table in the dining nook. "Gosh, but you look pretty." he said involuntarily. "Prettier than I've ever seen you!" "That's because I'm preparing food for you, and you're hungry," Natalie teased.

"It's almost ready -here, you can help me." She placed steak, a crisp salad of tomatoes and lettuce on the ble, and brought in a plate of biscults, golden brown and piping hot.
