Book summary: Caroline


ACROSS the monotonous years of Caroline Dalyngrange's well regulated childhood, one incident flashed like a meteor, leaving a trail of intense remembrance and marking for ever a day in the year 1774, when she was between ten and eleven years old. Returning home with her maid through the twilight of a September evening, she found herself unexpectedly in the midst of a concourse of people, tasted a bitter whiff of smoke, and all at once beheld flakes of flame floating up and down the roof of Farmer Nye's outhouse. Below that roof a door was standing open, bursts of smoke issued from it, paused, and then came rolling forth again. Between the bursts she suddenly became aware of a horse kicking and plunging within, and of a man in the doorway calling to it in vain.
