Extra info for Jane of Lantern Hill
11 Jane was to go to the Island with Mr and Mrs Stanley who were going down to visit a married daughter. Somehow Jane lived through the last days. She was determined she would not make any fuss because that would be hard on mother. There were no more good-night confidences and caressings . . no more little tender loving words spoken at special moments. But Jane, somehow, knew the two reasons for this. Mother could not bear it, for one thing, and, for another, grandmother was resolved not to permit it.
I'm sure I don't know why he did it. I couldn't fathom his motive . . although your father and I have always been very close to each other . . very close, lovey. I am ten years older than he is and I've always been more like a mother to him than a sister. " Home! The house into which Jane was ushered was cosy and sleek, just like Aunt Irene herself, but Jane felt about as much at home as a sparrow alone on an alien house-top. In the living-room Aunt Irene took off her hat and coat, patted her hair and put her arm around Jane.

Jane was more thankful than usual when Frank came to take her home. Little was being said at 60 Gay about Jane's going to the Island. How quickly the days flew by! Jane wished she could hold them back. " And now time just went stonily on . . tick tock, tick tock . . sunrise, sunset, ever and ever nearer to the day when she would be torn away from mother.
