Shortly before my grandmother Dymphna died she called me into her room. She was tired and wincing with pain. `I want to show you The Box, she said. But she looked so sick that I suggested we leave it until after she had rested. I had seen its contents maybe 10 years earlier, when I was 11 or 12. I didnt really know anything about this box, except that it was old, it came from Sweden and had been passed down the female line in our family.
