YES, I want to shake Webster for so many of her attitudes that she puts into Sallie.

But I also like Sallie an awful lot and I love watching the orphanage take shape.

Towards the end, when Sallie (view spoiler)

Rachel Ferguson, The Brontes Went to Woolworths

“Bibliotropic," Hugh said. "Like sunflowers are heliotropic, they naturally turn towards the sun. We naturally turn towards the bookshop.”
