Chapter 13

Armistice

11 November 1918

  • Ursula forges a note from her mother and leaves it on the door. The note tells Bridget to stay with Clarence's mother because the door is locked: "There is a gang of robbers in the village" (13.1).
  • The next day, Bridget isn't there, and Sylvie wonders why Ursula played such a prank on her.
  • No worries, though, because Sylvie sent Pamela to fetch Bridget.
  • Pamela returns and "darkness soon fell again" (13.20).
