PAWNED

JOHN BRUCE’S hands dropped to his sides. The door, already half open, was pushed wide, and Hawkins, the old chauffeur, stood on the threshold. And as John Bruce looked in that direction, he was suddenly and strangely conscious that somehow for the moment the old man dominated his attention even to the exclusion of Claire.

Those Who Stood In Darkness

A New Work of Mercy

TWELVE-year-old Nellie walked beside me and confided, “Next week I will have a new mother and four new brothers.
