Hearing a faint scrabbling sound on the landing outside, she’d gone, half asleep, to see what it was, and found Mother on the floor. She was on her knees beside an oak trunk carved with acorns, sifting in a wild, muddled way through what Catherine, moving closer, could see were heaps of baby clothes: tams, woolen boots, jackets smelling of damp and camphor. Clothes she had been saving for her grandchildren. ” The candle in Mother’s hand was close to a flannel nightshirt. ” There were huge circles beneath her mother’s eyes.
Once, long ago, when Father had talked and laughed, he’d described his moment of magic: seeing Mother, aged nineteen, in the moonlight on the veranda of his parents’ house in the foothills of Snowdonia. He’d remember what she’d worn: a long silver dress with a row of pearl buttons down the front. It was a summer ball; there was money for such things in those days. She was the daughter of a friend of his father’s, a land agent. Her name was Felicia. She’d come from London. And Catherine, forever after, had imagined her sitting there in the moonlight under the dark of the mountains, a transplanted creature like a mermaid.

It was easier when they were gone. She also preferred the winter months when the wind blew off the Atlantic and bent the trees on the Lleyn like little old men and it got dark an hour or so after lunch and there was no possibility of going anywhere.
