"... trying to sleep here and manage Mom’s sitters and work.” “Oh David, I’m sorry.” Penny wondered if her brother could detect the guilt in her voice. Her sister, a single parent, had heavy responsibilities at work and at home. Mrs. Nichols required around-the-clock supervision, and only ..."
"...Mrs. Nichols required around-the-clock supervision, and only she could placate Reverend Nichols. Months of discussing the situation and investigating locations available in Mississippi, South Carolina, and Virginia had led to their application at Imperial Palace, a four-building, multilevel care facility, ten minutes from her brother’s home. David Nichols, Health Services Director for Roanoke and its surrounding county, had enough to do without adding anything else. ..."

Chapter 7: Chapter Seven
"...Growing up as the oldest of three children, Penny had enjoyed the tree house and the sandbox where she played with her brother and sister, and the swings and stilts her father had made for them. Those were happy times, but as Penny grew older, the tension increased until her father’s depression became a breathing force. There were days when he didn’t say anything, and his expression made her ­stomach ..."
"...At the luggage carousel, Penny watched her red suitcase emerge from the cave and bounce toward her. She reached for the handle and another hand beat her to it, grabbing it away from her. Her brother set the bag down and grinned. David and his wife had rented a car and driven from their home in Virginia to the Charleston airport. ..."
"...Next, Penny placed a large packing box on the kitchen table beside a mound of time-worn items, whose odors crowded the room like shadows. She filled the crate with ten of her father’s sermons, a book written by her mother’s brother, old photographs and newspapers, and some of her own letters that her mother had saved. When Penny returned to Dixiana, Faye would mail the box to her. ..."

"... Sustained by a light supper in her brother’s home, Penny helped her mother up the steps to a guest bedroom and unpacked the suitcase. Rev. Nichols joined them and silently accepted his belongings. After a trip to the toilet he climbed into bed and left Penny to undress his wife. In ..."

"... outside Charlotte, so I should be in Roanoke by midday tomorrow. How was your trip?” Alice directed Penny out the back door to a recliner on the deck and mixed two drinks while Penny talked to her brother. “After I called you, Mother and Daddy wouldn’t eat lunch,” Penny told him. ..."

Chapter 14: Chapter Fourteen
"...Locating a taxi outside the terminal was no problem, and when the driver stopped at her brother’s home, Penny asked him to wait. She located the house key under its special rock, deposited her suitcase, and had the cabbie drive her on to the retirement center. She asked him to draw a map of the route and, uncertain of the appropriate amount, tipped him ..."

"... went to bed. She pressed a warm foot onto the cool carpet and stood up shivering. “Hello?” “You sound sleepy.” It was her brother’s voice. “Sorry to wake you. Had a rough night?” “It’s over. Are you back in Roanoke?” “We came back Wednesday. Today is Friday. Do ..."
"...sign the blood consent form. Meanwhile, redraw all the levels, then start a run of potassium. With his advanced lung disease and dehydration, I don’t feel too sure of these values. Okay? You got that? By the way,” Dr. Ghent chuckled, “Jane calls him brother but be sure you ask her what his nickname is.” ..."

"... I don’t know what to do anymore.” “Come in,” Penny said. “It’s good you’re here because we need your signature.” “Is brother better?” “We’re giving him fluids and potassium and as soon as you sign the transfusion consent, we’ll give him blood,” Penny said. ..."
109.
"... “No, don’t give him blood; I don’t want brother to have AIDS.” The woman stared at Penny as if she was a suspicious character, possibly a murderer. “That’s how Cousin Jack got AIDS and you’re NOT gonna give AIDS to brother!” Jane shook her head and stomped her foot. ..."

"... NOT gonna give AIDS to Brother!” Jane shook her head and stomped her foot. “Why don’t you visit with your brother while I call Dr. Ghent. Then you can talk to the doctor, and he’ll explain it to you.” “I brought what he likes: peanut butter crackers and brownies.” Jane handed ..."

"... what made these spots?” “Moth balls. I put some in his bed to keep snakes off.” Penny approached Jane, “I’ll have to ask you to leave now so we can take care of your brother.” “I won’t leave as long as Brother needs me.” “Then Flossie Mae will show you to the ..."

"... tell Miss Head her brother’s worse? She’d better come now.” Minutes passed and Jane did not come. Penny opened the Unit door and called across the hall. “Miss Head, you might want to come be with your brother now.” Jane, watching As The World Turns, continued to eat. “I’ll ..."
