Chapter One

Leaving


Sarah sat on her bed. It sank, as did her heart. How was she going to leave all this? Her childhood bedroom was wrapping her in invisible arms, protecting her from walking out the door a final time. She gazed for a moment at her small library. Sarah could take a couple of those friends with her, right? Tempted to take one off the shelf, she resisted, knowing if she began reading one for old time's sake, it would end up in her suitcase and get the ball rolling. The Secret Garden, Anne of Green Gables, Wuthering Heights… so many were as dear friends. How many times had she dug in the nurturing earth with Mary and Dickon, cried over the heartaches of Anne Shirley, or agonized over the complicated lives of Heathcliff, the Earnshaws, and the Lintons? Parting with them was almost as bad as parting with her family.
