    reading english

    Will you paraphrase the following sentence.
    " Sometimes she read to me in the kitchen while she sat churning, and the churning sobbed along with any story."

    Please explain the word sobbed here and paraphrase the whole sentence.
    Thank you.

    Sobbed = cried
    Chruning- this is ambiguous- it could mean very emotional, or she could be churning butter or something.
