She tore her mind away, knowing that it was hopeless and wrong :o remember. She must live, now, with emptiness and loneliness. But what would Jo« have decided about these people? Could she believe Victor? Or the implacable Rudy, tensed for sotne sudden, fierce spring? Could she believe the foreigner? Or M». Everson?

The guU of space beneath her only deepened the impression. Mile beyond mile the emptiness stretched away, transfixed in silence. Over it all the strange, pallid woman seemed to hold dominion.
