Interview with the heroine from A Daughter’s Return by Janet Lee Barton:

1. Rebecca, tell me the most interesting thing about you.

I’m not sure . . . maybe that I’ve made it out of the tenements in New York City? But then that was through nothing I did, but that I was found by a woman who lived at my mother’s boarding house and, because of her, my daughter and I have been reunited with my family. I am taking classes at the YWCA and learning to type at home, so that I’ll never have to live in the tenements again.

2. What do you do for fun?

I play dolls with my daughter, Jenny. I love spending time with her. But now that I’m back with my family, I’ve begun to enjoy outings with the other boarders. Ben has been very kind to my daughter and me. We all plan on going skating soon.

3. What do you put off doing because you dread it?

I put off telling others about my past and how I came to live in the tenements in the first place. I especially dread telling Ben, although he’s shared so much with me. I know I need to . . . soon, perhaps.

4. What are you afraid of most in life?

That if others, especially Ben, knew about my past, it would change their opinion of me.

5. What do you want out of life?

I can’t have what I want. I ruined that years ago. But if I could . . . it would be to have a husband who loved me and wanted to be a father to my daughter.

6. What is the most important thing to you?

My daughter, Jenny. She’s all that kept me going for so long and I want to make a good life for her.

7. Do you read? If so, what is your favorite type of book to read?

Now that I live at Heaton House, I plan on reading the many books in my mother’s study. But my favorite book is the Bible.

8. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

That I’d never have been so rebellious as to leave home.

9. Do you have a pet? If so, what is it and why that pet?

I don’t have a pet, but I’d like to get Jenny a puppy one day.

10. If you could travel back in time, where would you go and why?

I would go back to when I was left on my own and run back home to my family as fast as I could instead of thinking they would never forgive me. I know better now.
