She could not see why her mother said Christie Devlin was sought by all in times of crisis: Una Maguire would have made the tea, all right, and then talked rapidly about anything to fill the air in case anyone started talking about what was really wrong.
But Christie said little, and waited calmly and serenely in case Faye needed to talk. And she’d know when there was a deep, flesh of pain. She was thinking of herself as a teenager when the painful subjects had never been touched upon.
If Christie had been her mother, she’d had seen the trouble Maggie was going through from the very first days she came home from school, shell-shocked at the naked hatred she’d encountered from the gang of bullies.
