An inexplicable and even supernatural moment in the book that proves a turning point, snapping Jane out of her acquiescence to a situation she manifestly doesn’t want.  The hill-sent echo is like a calling.

She duly responds.


‘”Where are you?” seemed spoken among mountains; for I heard a hill-sent echo repeat the words.’
