Rose dreams of the tower where the wretched Judith lives. Those mournful eyes pleading for forgiveness. She often has this dream and wakes from it her stomach in knots.
Her dreaming self pulls against the urge to visit the tower, Judith deserves to suffer after what she did.
‘Why should I absolve her anguish? thinks Rose.
She sleeps fitfully til dawn, woken by a robin singing in the garden. Drawn from a place deep within Rose, a new tranquillity washes over her, melting the rage.Iit is obvious, Judith is forgiven. Rose frees them both.
