Context

“That book is quite closed?»
The gray eyes that had so often looked up at her with entreating worship, looked up at her now, with a last struggling ray of hope in them, and Maggie met them with her large sincere gaze.
«That book never will be closed, Philip,» she said, with grave sadness; «I desire no future that will break the ties of the past. But the tie to my brother is one of the strongest. I can do nothing willingly that will divide me always from him.»
«Is that the only reason that would keep us apart forever, Maggie?» said Philip, with a desperate determination to have a definite answer.” source
