The day the sky fell in

ByMargaret Cromarty

It was Mothering Sunday. Our younger daughter, Elisabeth, was away at boarding school. We had no plans to see her that weekend because she would soon be home for the holiday. Our elder daughter, Elinor, was fast asleep after a late night out with friends. My mother was staying with us; I had collected her from the station the day before.
