Quote of the Day

But as next day happened to be Sunday, Mrs. Storm went all adamant on them, and refused to countenance such secular frivolities. She packed them off to church, where they sat in the Renasay pew (which was placed at right angles to the rest of the congregation, under the minister's nose) and felt very conspicuous and fearful of catching the eye of any of their friends in the body of the kirk, knowing that the inevitable result would be those agonizing and commanding fits of giggling which seemed to take their worst form only in church.

From HIGHLAND HOLIDAY, Chapter 10, In Search of Atmosphere.
