"[Red] squirrels chittered ... lilting from branch to branch in the autumn sunlight like wisps of wind-torn flame. It seemed always sunny; hoar frost every morning and red sunsets every night ... like a great rose-red balloon ... then hurry home, keeping well to the middle of the road , out of reach of the tree-men who were particularly Rackhamish in that part of the woods ... the verge of the field-path [was] always starred with shining galaxies of lesser celandines." [p. 46, 51]

This remembrance from the author's childhood, at age six, presages her ability with detail, nature and light as a historical novelist.
