It occurred to Maggie that her mother once told her, on one of those rare occasions she saw her mother, when the nurse was sick, not to talk to strangers and not to answer the door for them.

"Kill her? But she's such a rare thing."
"Oh, then send her back? Send her back to live a fourth life? She's a glitch, a mistake. We've run enough risks with her already."

This query was met with laughter.
"See? See? She's as ordinary as they come. I'll send her right back, I think."
