Chapter 7: Chapter Seven
"...The windows were closed and the air in the house was stifling. An impossible pile of bills and papers covered the dining room table, and out the back door the once manicured grass was ragged and strewn with sticks and leaves. Beyond the yard, sparkling in the late afternoon sun, stretched the ever-changing river upon which several sail boats were tacking home from the day’s outing. With everything still in place it felt like this home should go on forever, but its time had run out. ..."

Chapter 10: Chapter Ten
"...deep breath, and felt a difference in the air. High over her car, seven wild ducks flapped in formation. It was the second week of October, and cool. Trees along the interstate still displayed a collage of gold and crimson, but gusts of wind brought their leaves swirling down, leaving bunches of green mistletoe visible in the upper branches. ..."
"...The wind had picked up, and airborne leaves filled the backyard with dancing color; the ground was covered and still they hurried down.

Doctors were paid for each patient they admitted to the hospital. Penny thought Scales personified the spectacular autumn-scarlet of poison oak leaves: tempting and dangerous. ..."

Chapter 15: Chapter Fifteen
"...She had never been this far back from the hospital. To her left was a two-story building—probably Maintenance.

"...hawk, whose extended wings reached the corner posts. The bird stood on a vine that divided and continued along the sides, then climbed the posts that supported the headboard. Branches of the vine extended around the square tester and met in front with a great flourish of leaves. ..."
