Could you tech me the meaning of this semtence?
The content is that a girl who left her home entered a witch's house and stole a great bag of money of a witch from her house.
The old witch went after her and caught her; she took all the money away from her, beat her, and sent her off home just as she was.
This is from an English fairy tale "The Old Witch". I can't grasp the meaning of "sent her off home just as she was". Is this "home" the witch's or the girl's? What' the meaning of "just as she was"? Could you tech me?
