"Mama has been holding her breath, and as he reaches out to her, she finally exhales. She snuggles up to his shoulder and takes in the odor of machinery and diesel that has clung to his shirt and hitched a ride home from his workshop.
That’s my Dad’s smell; the smell of a man who works hard for his family and deserves to hear news like this. Almost every time she inhales, she steals another little piece of him for herself."
"Caroline’s tone is as loud as the dial tone in Mama’s ear. She calls her back, but Caroline yells at Mama before hanging up again.They won’t speak again until Caroline’s mother’s funeral, one year from now.
That’s the first crack in the glass house..." ---SUKI by CF Winn
