The Changeling Author:Philippa Carr "On that Christmas night I had a strange experience. I was not sure whether I was awake or sleeping. I thought I was awake but afterwards I supposed I could not have been, for it seemed to me that my mother was in the room. Remembering back, I did not see her but I almost felt that I did. It was just that I knew she was there. I did not hear her... more » voice but the words were in my mind. She was calling to me...telling me what I must do.
"I lay there, my heart pounding. I was exultant suddenly because she was with me...because she had come back. I tried to call out to her but I did not hear my voice.
"I just know that she was with me...urging me to act."
