Thin Air (Weather Warden #6) Working It (Love by Design #1)

THE THRUM OF MUSIC VIBRATED through the walls and right into my chest. Nerves like I’d never felt before caused demented fluttering in my belly.

When Mr. Mintz comes back and sits next to his wife, the old midwife shows him the unusual cord. See this, Ernest, she instructs. It’s a true knot. Your little girl was swimming around in the womb and made the loop-de-loop herself. I don’t want you saying anything bad about this new midwife. These things happen, and it wasn’t anyone’s fault.Mintz shoots me a hostile look, then turns his attention to his wife. I’m so sorry. I’m so, so sorry, he says, pushing back her red hair and stroking her face. If we’d only had the money, I would have carried you to the hospital.

Crossed (Matched #2)

Mrs. Potts interrupts, Now, Ernest, don’t you go blaming yourself, neither. I already told you. The baby’s time had come. Some of us get ninety years on this good earth. Some get nine days. Your little one didn’t get nine minutes. There’s nothing those doctors at the hospital could have done. I can tell by looking this baby’s been gone for two days. The good Lord giveth, and the good Lord taketh away. Your job is to take care of your woman. Make her life easy until her heart mends.By the time we’ve cleaned up the blood and remade the bed, the shadows of the mountains lean into the room. Mrs. Potts, Bitsy, and I move into the kitchen to wash the limp infant and leave the couple alone. The old lady wraps the tiny girl in a clean blanket and carries it out to the children.Come here, boys. She sits down on the porch rocker. I want you to see your dead sissy. She’s just a little bitty thing, but Jesus took her home early. She’s an angel now. The four boys, their faces white with sorrow, gather round the rocker.

On Fire (Shadow Stalkers #4)

Mama was crying, one of the kids whispers. We never heard her cry before.I should have gotten Miss Patience here sooner. I tried. That’s Albert.

Don’t you go reproaching yourself either, son! You did what you could. That’s all God asks of us. Albert wipes his eyes.

The youngest boy touches the dead baby’s hand and then wipes his tears. Look at her itty-bitty fingers!I shifted in my seat. Do you remember Harold Larson? I asked. I introduced you to him at the cocktail party.

She squinted, trying to place him. The one who was on Law Review with you? Tall, with brown hair?Did you happen to notice that he was alone?

Filthy Beautiful Forever (Filthy Beautiful Lies #4)

His girlfriend just broke up with him.Oh, she said, though I could tell she had no idea how this related to her or why I was thinking about it.

It’s going to be a tough year, I began. I’m sure I’ll practically live in the library.She put a friendly hand on my knee. You did great the first two years. I’m sure you’ll do just fine.

I hope so, I continued. It’s just that with everything going on, I’m probably not going to be able to make it down every weekend to see you like I did this summer.I figured that. But we’ll still see each other. It’s not like you won’t have any time at all. And I can always drive up to see you, too, remember.

In the distance, I watched as a flock of starlings broke from the trees. You might want to check before you come. To see if I’m free, I mean. The last year is supposed to be the busiest.She tilted her head, trying to decipher my meaning. What’s going on, Wilson?
