Set entirely in France thus making it the only Virginia Andrews novel to be set entirely in Europe, Fobidden Heart picks up where Forbidden Sister ends, it tells us what happens to Emmie after she was abandoned by her sister in Paris. I expected much more from the ghost writer and was taken by complete surprise at this sad attempt to look into the life of Emmie in Paris.
Andrews This was a quick little novella in the Forbidden series. Died December 19, aged 63 , U. And just plain dodgy storytelling overall.
Very little was resolved at the end of the story. Foreman's School for Girls, run by the abusive Dr. We had retreated to the lobby in silence, Grandpa resting his large right hand over the back of my neck and me clutching his shirt with my left hand.
We needed to keep touching each other, comforting each other. We sat on a pair of chairs facing the exam rooms. He held my hand and stared ahead; his face had never been more stone-cold.
Somehow all the noise around us seemed to disappear. It was as if I had lost my hearing. We were waiting now to learn about Myra. She was having an X-ray. Would she die, too? Suddenly, my grandfather looked up. The doctor he had first spoken to was out in the hallway again, this time talking to a nurse.
Grandpa rose and walked over to him. Moments later, he was leading my grandfather back toward the exam rooms. I saw them disappear around a turn. Maybe Grandpa was finding out about Myra, I thought.
My legs were still trembling. I was afraid to look at anyone, even though I could feel people staring at me. Had they heard about Willie? Were they waiting to see me crumple up in uncontrollable sobs? Some looked terrified themselves. For some reason, I began to wonder what my friends were doing at that moment. Were they planning lunch, watching television, talking on the phone and giggling about silly things?
Was anyone else anywhere thinking about him? Was anyone laughing or smiling? Were they all holding their breath, waiting for a phone call? Did someone call the hospital? Most people avoided looking at one another. A look might bring bad news. Finally, my grandfather came back around the corner, obviously having realized he had left me sitting there.
He beckoned to me, and I hurried to join him. Maybe what we were told was untrue. It was broken, and she has three fractured ribs, a few bruises, and a slight concussion. Our concern was no surprise. Myra was part of our family now. She had also been a nanny for my mother and her younger brother, Uncle Bobby. A business associate of my grandpa had recommended Myra, who had been working for a Lord and Lady Willowsby in London.
She came to America to work for my grandparents after Lady Willowsby died and Lord Willowsby moved to Cornwall to live with his son and daughter-in-law.
Neither Grandpa nor I could imagine the house without Myra. She had a habitually stern, lean face on which smiles seemed to bubble up from some hidden place whenever she permitted them. I knew the maids my grandparents had were terrified of her, most not lasting more than six months; the grounds people, the gardeners, the pool man, and anyone who came onto the property to do any work made sure she was happy with what they were doing, even before my grandpa had a look at it.
He shook his head. His face was still ashen gray.
When my grandfather was deeply upset about something, he seemed to close up every part of himself through which rage or emotion could escape. The steam built up inside him and made him look like he might explode. The only indication came in the way his hands and lips trembled slightly.
He was six feet three and at least two hundred twenty pounds of mostly muscle. He had been a truck driver himself, and because he hated the long days and weeks of separation from his family, he had put together his own company and built it to where it was today.
It was even on the stock market now. I had no idea how rich my grandfather was, but to most people who knew us, he seemed to be the richest man in the country. Wherever he went, people practically leaped out of their skin to please him. He put his hand on my shoulder and then brought me into a hug.
He took my hand and led me down the hallway to another room, where a nurse and a doctor were working around a very small boy. He was lying there with his cerulean-blue eyes wide open but looking as glassy and frozen as the eyes of the worried people in the lobby. His pale face seemed to be fading into the milk-white pillow, making his flaxen hair more golden.
I thought he looked like a fallen cherub, an angel who had floated onto the hospital bed and was still too stunned to speak. I was close to heaving up everything I had eaten all day as it was. I looked up at my grandfather and saw something different in his face. He always seemed impervious.
It was as if he had a new limit to how deeply he would smile or laugh and how tightly he would hold on to the reins of his curiosity, especially about people. I waited a moment to see what my grandfather wanted to do now. Why were we looking in on this little boy, anyway? How would this make what happened to Willie different? There was nothing that could make it any better.
They said it all happened so quickly that no one could do anything about it. He just looked back at the boy and nodded as if he heard someone else speaking. Was he already too terrible to look at, his face distorted by death?
I wanted so much to look at him, to touch him. Maybe if he knew I was there beside him, he would come back to life. I still believed in miracles.
Now his voice was thinner, his throat closing up. His lips and hands had that tremble again. I felt like a blowup of myself losing air quickly. My body seemed to be sinking in on me, collapsing. It was all taking a firmer grip on me. He turned and looked down at me. He was still holding my hand. Grandpa reached down and lifted me up. I realized immediately how silly that looked, a sixteen-year-old girl picked up like a child half her age. To him, it was just the natural thing to do, I guess.
For a moment, that took my breath away. He lowered me and then he turned with me, and we headed back to the lobby to wait for more news about Myra.
He literally lifted me to my feet. Then he took my hand. The nurse, a woman who reminded me a little of my mother, put her hand on my shoulder and stroked my hair.
Strong for everyone? What language was she speaking? How could I be strong for anyone now? Tears were frozen in my eyes. I thought I probably looked as comatose as that little boy with the flaxen hair.
We walked back toward the exam rooms, where the nurse led us to another exit. Myra was in a wheelchair.
Myra looked terrible. Her eyes were mostly closed, there was a bad bruise on her left cheekbone, and her mouth hung open as if her jaw had been broken, too. The cast looked twice as big as her arm. Looking like this, a way I had never seen her, she seemed much older to me and quite small. I wondered if she knew about Willie.
He rushed forward to help get her into the backseat. He took it and then nodded for me to get into the backseat with her. My tears did all the talking. She uttered a horrible moan, and I put my arm around her and buried my forehead against her shoulder. Grandpa drove off silently.
I lifted my head quickly and looked back at the hospital. Everyone came out when we drove through the opened gate. Jimmy Wilson practically lunged at the car, and when Myra was helped out, he lifted her in his arms like a baby to carry her into the house. I could see that everyone had heard the news and had been crying.
The person who would take it almost worse than me was our cook, Faith Richards. No one spoiled or loved Willie more than she did. Myra was becoming more alert. I can walk! She glared at him, trying to be angry about it, but anyone could see she was putting it on.
It was the first thing he had said since we left the hospital. Then she paused and looked at me. I was afraid that if I looked at any of them, I would burst into hysterical sobs. I was in that place between a nightmare and just waking up, this time fighting against waking up but also pushing away the nightmare. How could all of this be happening to us? How could any of it be? We lived in Prescott, Virginia, a community thirty-five miles northeast of Charlottesville that seemed to have been created for millionaires.
If you were a resident, it was easy to believe you lived in a protective bubble, which made any misfortune happening to you or your neighbors seem impossible to imagine and even more impossible to accept. Rich people always get saved in the best hospitals by the most expensive and brilliant doctors. She closed her eyes, began dreaming of biscuits and tea, and never woke up.
They both laughed about it. I was always intrigued by how easily My Faith could get Myra to laugh. Except for Grandma Arnold and Willie, she was the only one who could. I had heard this before my parents died, and I believed we were all so special that nothing bad would ever happen to us.
