Her true reason for refusing to see him was clear to her if to no one else: she hated the thought of hurting him! Moreover, she was strangely oppressed by the fear that she would falter at the crucial moment and that her half-guarded defences would go down before the assault. She knew his strength far better than she knew his weakness. She had had an illuminating example of ...

Not a tree or shrub was to be seen, everything was rioting in summer heat and drought, while behind lay the last grand canyon ...
