Let's continue reading....

As a child, Olivia had delighted in conjuring stories for each stair. She would sit upon each for hours - a journal on her lap and a pen in her hand.

Olivia recalled her mother's reaction each time she found her sitting on the stairs.

"Chairs are for sitting," she would say. Or "Don't be a nuisance." Or "It's not safe for you to sit there. No one can get by you."

Her grandmother was different.

"Leave the poor girl alone," Olivia overheard her say to Katherine. "She's fine there. There's plenty of room."

Only Grandma Esther showed an interest in her writing. Only Grandma Esther listened to the stories.
