Chapter 1: Chapter One
" a tone Jackie Kennedy might have used in a comment about the Rose Garden, while her glistening face bore witness to the temperature in massive Oakden on one of the stickiest summer days Mississippi had dished out. “A brand-new pair of black lace undies disappeared from my laundry basket and I think your dog might be the culprit.” ..."
"...Entering the house from the garage, Penny undressed in the laundry room and tossed her muddy yard clothes into the washer. Yesterday’s rain had made the weeding job messy. She envisioned her immaculate, stylishly-dressed mother. As a child and even later, Penny had thought that when she grew up, she would live in heels like her mother, ..."
"...only to face new obstacles the next. She remembered working eight-hour night shifts, ten on and four off, and dragging herself out of bed before the children arrived home from school. After supper and baths, when they were tucked in, she sometimes cried as she folded laundry before returning to the hospital to work again. ..."

Chapter 2: Chapter Two
"...“In laundry. Beside the elevator in the basement.” Kerri’s chin quivered as she spoke. “They all laughed at me. They asked for our suggestions on cleaning bathrooms so I told them that at home I run my commode seat through the dishwasher once a week to get ..."

Chapter 12: Chapter Twelve
"...“As a matter of fact, that’s why I called,” David said. “We’re leaving for Charleston on Wednesday after work and, unless there’s some emergency, we won’t be back until the next Wednesday. Mom’s taken care of except for her clothes—Alice has been doing their laundry because otherwise their clothes get mixed in with other people’s things. Dad takes his meals in the dining room and he can use the IP bus, if he will. Anyway, we don’t want to leave them for six days without somebody checking on them.” ..."
"... Her day off suddenly consumed, she went into overdrive. She called the local travel agency to schedule her trip, then phoned Claws & Paws. The vet could see her. She dressed, stripped the beds and piled the wash in the laundry room. She would ask Dr. Allen what to do with Dick’s snake. ..."

Chapter 21: Chapter Twenty-One
"...“Hanging in there—but I’m tired of working in laundry.” Kerri glanced around the room. “There’s going to be an opening on Fourth, and I’ve applied for it. The woman I work with downstairs is a snit. You know? Thinks she’s better than anybody else! Today at break we were having fun—everybody telling ..."

"... Penny scrutinized Carina’s skin-tight pants and phoned the laundry room, leaving a message on their answering machine. The medium pants Penny had selected ended three inches above her ankles and when Carina took a look at Penny’s outfit, she launched into her distinctive, wheezing laughter. ..."
"... her? Holy shit! You two look like something the cat dragged in—are we out of scrubs?” “I left a phone message in laundry,” Penny said. “Put the patient in 408. How long before she comes?” “They only asked for the room number so they’ll call Report before they bring her. ..."
"... I’ll have somebody call you.” The elevator opened and Kerri smiled at them from behind a laundry cart, stacked high with blue tops and bottoms. “They must not have distributed scrubs for weeks!” she said, pushing the cart toward the staff room. Penny sat on the bed beside Flossie ..."
"... from the hallway. “It already smells better.” “You destroyed it,” Kerri said. “They make you do everything, don’t they Kerri?” Penny entered the room. “Do you work in the laundry too?” “No. I just brought up your stuff. I used to work down there, though; sometimes I ..."
"... Dr. Wiseman had an accident on the stairs?” “Yes, last summer.” Penny perched on an arm of the recliner. “I thought that if you were working in the laundry, you might have seen the commotion when they found her.” “Yes, I did—but before that, I saw a man wearing a lab jacket and a ..."
