  • This morning I was in for a nasty surprise: after breakfast Peter beckoned me upstairs.
  • I’m occasionally sentimental, as you know, but from time to time I have reason to be: when Peter and I are sitting close together on a hard wooden crate among the junk and dust, our arms around each other’s shoulders, Peter toying with a lock of my hair; when the birds outside are trilling their songs, when the trees are in bud, when the sun beckons and the sky is so blue—oh, that’s when I wish for so much!

  • There are no more uses of "beckon" in the book.
