We Have Always Lived In The Castle (2011) - Plot & Excerpts

There had originally been a key for each of us; our father had a key, and our mother, and the keys were kept on a rack beside the kitchen door. When Charles started out for the village Constance gave him a key, perhaps our father’s key, and a shopping list, and the money to pay for what he bought.
“You shouldn’t keep money in the house like this,” he said, holding it tight in his hand for a minute before he reached into a back pocket and took out a wallet. “Women alone like you are, you shouldn’t keep money in the house.”
I was watching him from my corner of the kitchen but I would not let Jonas come to me while Charles was in the house. “Are you sure you put everything down?” he asked Constance.
“Hate to make two trips.”
I waited until Charles was well along, perhaps almost to the black rock, and then I said, “He forgot the library books.”
Constance looked at me for a minute. “Miss Wickedness,” she said. “You wanted him to forget.”
“How could he know about the library books?
