Book Excerpt: 
. . .Listen to me!  You say I did you wrong in the past—and I did—let me make up for it, let me atone.  If I did not rightly measure love before, let me show that I can now.”

She sank to the floor and threw her arms about his knees, sobbing.  “And you do care for me.  You do care for me.  Think!  The long years I have waited, suffered!  You can never know!”  He stooped and raised her to her feet.

“Listen,” he commanded, opening the door and lifting her bodily outside.  “It cannot be.  We are not alone to be considered.  You must go.  I wish you a safe journey.  You will find it tougher work when you get up by the Sixty Mile, but you have the best boatmen in the world, and will get through all right.  Will you say good-by?”
