Inside this Book – I crawl out of a hotel bed while it’s still dark to meet the movers at my new house near the university. My furniture and boxes, enough to fill a few rooms—but not enough to weigh me down—were the last loaded into the huge van that pulled up to my old place. First in, first out. They place things where I want them and assemble my dining table and bed in thirty minutes. The house isn’t much bigger than my apartment was, and with an extra bedroom and a garage, my belongings hardly dent the space. The van rumbles off to meet the next wanderers, and I take my first real breath since I gave strangers access to my possessions. My running shoes are near the top of my suitcase. I ditch my flip- flops and tie the laces quickly. The first thing most people do when they complete a move is unpack the bedsheets or locate the coffeemaker. Not me. What convinces me I can start over again is reminding myself that when the time comes, I’ll still know how to run. I drop my key in my pocket and stretch only a moment before beginning a slow jog along a circle drive that borders the neighborhood of midcentury homes, with mine at the back. The air is thick with the heady scent of flowers, and lush, dense grass covers lawns instead of the usual pale stubble of late summer. After crisscrossing the country a few times, I worried that returning to Texas in August would be depressing. Everyone has a different theory about the record-breaking rain this year. I’m just happy to see color. The morning humidity, though, has me dripping before I even pick up my pace, and breathing takes extra effort.
Inside this book –Home for Erring and Outcast Girls PDF Book by Julie Kibler – The two ladies dressed all in white hovered over where Lizzie and Docie lay huddled in a fetid pile of rags, and she thought it was angels come, finally, to take them away up to heaven. Her heart quickened. She’d figured on the Lord forgetting her and her girl—or maybe just turning his back. Keys clinked as the jail keeper unlocked his steel cage, shoved into a corner of the room, with rusting shelves for bunks in each half. They were alone in it but for a man sleeping off drink on the other side. The angels bent inside to whisper over her and Docie. Now she feared they’d take her girl but leave her to die alone and suffer eternal hell. She wouldn’t have blamed the Lord for thinking to do it that way, for Docie was surely not liable for her mother’s sins. Even if Lizzie was not worthy, her Docie was innocence itself, though her tiny body was riddled with the same sick. The child slept at her teat whenever they were together, but Lizzie couldn’t bear to think what might have befallen Docie when she couldn’t watch her every minute of the day and night. Either way, Lizzie was to blame. She had let her down so many ways. No more. She wouldn’t let anyone, heavenly or not, snatch her girl without a struggle. She sat as high as the metal above her head allowed and wrapped her arms around Docie. The little girl flirted with waking, but her exhaustion was plain, and she slumped against her mother, cheeks fever red and dark lashes scarcely visible against the purple smudges beneath her eyes. Docie could not fight; it was up to her mother to see that they remained together.
