Description

Excerpt from Sissie AT last and finally! Iris thought when the plane sped away from Boston, where they had been forced to land because of fog in New York. Once more they were on their way, and Iris assumed that her brother Ralph, who was meeting her at the airport, must have been waiting for hours. Just my luck that we had to run into bad weather, Iris thought. Beside her sat the woman she had met in the airport in Barcelona. For the moment Iris was too busy with her own thoughts to speak, and Helen Kessler respected her silence. Both of the women smoked cigarettes. Damn, it's cold in here, Iris said half aloud, when they were once more over New York. The plane seemed to slow, gradually losing mo mentum in the gray, and banked above the cottony Stormclouds racing endlessly by. Iris took a deep breath and glanced r at Helen. Here we go again. Breasting the currents of air like a huge, Stiff bird, the craft circled lower and lower. There was a sharp, high whine and Iris heard the massive wheels thud into place. The plane hung motionless for one frighten mg instant, and then hissed downward through the clouds. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
