‘A gold gust of wind sounded like a far­away train whis­tle as it blew through South Bend that morn­ing. Win­ter had ar­rived early in In­di­ana, in the middle of Oc­to­ber be­neath a cloud­less sky. There was proof of it ev­ery­where. The mighty Saint Joe River had frost on its banks as it twisted past Saint Mary’s Col­lege in hun­gry green tor­rents. Over­head the sun was cen­tred in the sky like a yel­low di­a­mond on blue satin. The farm fields sur­round­ing the school were flat and fal­low, faded to a dull gold that would soon turn white with the first snow.”
