I don’t feel the presence of God here.
I pace along the far side of the river, my ears filled with the hum of cicadas and the roar of water flowing over the milldam. Vermont is postcard perfect. I could stand on my toes and peer over the current and the cattails and see the whole town spread out before me. Green-shuttered houses. The cobblestone square. The church spire. The boarding school.
But I don’t.
I crave the illusion of solitude.
This week’s teaser comes from Another Little Piece by Kate Karyus Quinn (ASHLEIGH):
They found me in Oklahoma, which was strange, because Annaliese Rose Gordon’s home was in the northeastern part of the country. Western New York to be more specific. Buffalo, if you were looking to stick a pin in a map. According to the GPS stats, that was a distance of almost thirteen hundred miles. From the way everyone kept shaking their heads and saying “Oklahoma” in the same way they might have said “Mars,” I guessed this was far beyond the range where anyone had ever considered looking for Annaliese.
Here’s another GPS-derived fact. Those thirteen hundred miles can be traveled by car in about twenty-one hours. A little less than a day to get from one part of the country to another seems reasonable, but that doesn’t include stops. When you account for stopping early and often, those thirteen hundred miles start to stretch across several days … and they begin to feel like forever.
What are you reading this Tuesday?
