It's not like her to steal a book from the library and boldly display it among her own. Of course, it does have a nice binding. Did she love it so much she just couldn't take it back? Or did she claim it was lost and pay for it? Or just stop using her library card? Maybe she bought it at a book sale because the library had more than one? Too late to ask now. She is gone. This book is just one more little mystery from my list of unasked questions.
