She rested her forehead on her hands, closed her aching eyes and began to pray. “Dear God, please help me,” she whispered. ” Slowly Anne pushed to her feet. She stood very straight, taking deep breaths of the clean fall wind, waiting for the weakness to pass, then bent, hooked her hands under Cord’s upper arms, and began to pull. She dragged his body across the yard toward the house foot by foot. It was not as impossible as she had feared, almost but not quite beyond her.
