Mrs. Clay ate dinner with us every night in the dark-paneled dining room, serving us from the sideboard but otherwise joining in as a member of the family, and I felt instinctively that my father would not want to tell more of his story in her presence. If I sought him in his library, he asked me quickly about my day or wanted to see my homework. I checked his library shelves in secret soon after our return from Emona, but the book and papers had already vanished from their high place; I had no idea where he’d put them.
His face was of a crisp English mold, sharp-featured and intensely blue-eyed; he’d told me once that from his father, a Tuscan immigrant to Sussex, he’d acquired only a love of good food. To look into Rossi’s face was to see a world as definite and orderly as the changing of the guards at Buckingham Palace. His mind was another thing altogether.
