The House of the Wolf; a romance

Publisher Description

I had afterwards such good reason to look back upon and remember the events of that afternoon that Catherine's voice seems to ring in my brain even now. I can shut my eyes and see again, after all these years, what I saw then-just the blue summer sky, and one grey angle of the keep, from which a fleecy cloud was trailing like the smoke from a chimney. I could see no more because I was lying on my back, my head resting on my hands. Marie and Croisette, my brothers, were lying by me in exactly the same posture, and a few yards away on the terrace, Catherine was sitting on a stool Gil had brought out for her. It was the second Thursday in August, and hot. Even the jackdaws were silent. I had almost fallen asleep, watching my cloud grow longer and longer, and thinner and thinner, when Croisette, who cared for heat no more than a lizard, spoke up sharply, Mademoiselle, he said, why are you watching the Cahors road.
