Whitewash

Whitewash  (1903) 
by Ethel Watts Mumford
Three Americans girl friends, kodaks all ready, are prepared for an exciting time photographing the excited French miracle seekers on St. Anne's Eve at the Basilica in Auray. But a different kind of excitement also awaits. And, for no-nonsense Victoria at least, this may not be the last of it.

She found a candle and dragged herself up the long winding stairs and through the dark passages, guided by instinct and the smell of hay. ... Her room door gave as she touched it, but no light shone from within, and suddenly Sonia, her hair falling about her ears, her eyes wide with excitement, stood before her. Only an instant the vision lasted, her candle was extinguished, and Sonia's voice gave warning in a whisper: "Be quiet! Somebody is coming over the roofs!"
