    Katie Maurice

    Everything is nicer with a friend. Two paperback copies and two hardcover copies of Anna Ruadh, and up to two names in the Patrons list printed at the front of the book.

    ❦ “I used to pretend that my reflection in [the glass bookcase door] was another little girl who lived in it. I called her Katie Maurice, and we were very intimate. I used to talk to her by the hour, especially on Sunday, and tell her everything. Katie was the comfort and consolation of my life. We used to pretend that the bookcase was enchanted and that if I only knew the spell I could open the door and step right into the room where Katie Maurice lived, instead of into Mrs. Thomas’ shelves of preserves and china. And then Katie Maurice would have taken me by the hand and led me out into a wonderful place, all flowers and sunshine and fairies, and we would have lived there happy for ever after.”
