Chapter 9: Chapter Nine
"... the other end of the storage room. “Where does that go?” Kerri displayed her knowledge with enthusiasm. “It goes behind the morgue and connects to a tunnel that goes out to the maintenance building behind the hospital.” “I’m not very observant,” Penny said. “I’ve never ..."

Chapter 13: Chapter Thirteen
"... tell me that elevator-room door opened to a hallway that went by the morgue?” Penny asked. “Yes, but this is the front of the morgue. That hall goes by the back of the morgue down in the tunnel.” At the end of the corridor, Kerri pushed open an outside door to reveal three plumbing and ..."

Chapter 22: Chapter Twenty-Two
"...He hesitated. “Well, Lily’s aunt willed it to her and nobody would buy it so we moved in. It’s built where another house used to stand—the old foundations are still down there, and a local antique dealer told me his grandfather said there used to be a tunnel from the house to the, that may be true and it may not be; your guess is as good as mine.” ..."

"...There was no way to refuse her invitation. Spider webs brushed against Penny’s face and her feet caught on roots and rocks in a tunnel cut into the earth. She concentrated on moving forward without falling. The shaft was devoid of light and its dank air gave off a moldy odor. The grade took a sharp pitch downward, and while Penny struggled with her footing, her escort vanished, swallowed up into ..."
"...She walked on, hoping to glimpse the Cox house up the hill on her left. She looked up the steep, kudzu-covered bank, searching for anything that might indicate the opening to a tunnel. Believing herself to be directly below the house, she began to climb, making her way through the undergrowth, trying to invent a path perpendicular to the river. ..."
"... Johnny called from the riverside. “You’re standing in poison ivy!” Turning back, she retraced her steps. “I thought maybe I could find where the tunnel started. I guess you think I’m cracking up.” Johnny kicked at the ground and scratched his head as he waited. “I think ..."
"...Penny reached his side. “Last night I dreamed that an old lady led me though a tunnel from the basement to a hole in this hill. Her smile was like Mother’s.... And the bed I slept in—I think it might be the one Mother and Grandmother were born in. Johnny—the medallion on the ceiling is just like my necklace!” ..."
"...carried her cup to the table. She gazed at her right hand, at her mother’s ring on her own finger, wishing her mother were here to tell them about a time when the basement floor had been wood, and there was a padlock on the cage, and the tunnel went to the river. ..."

"...Penny peered across the congested room to the metal door on the opposite wall, which Kerri had said led to an underground tunnel and the maintenance building. Claustrophobia invaded her mind. If the door was locked she would be stuck in this God-forsaken room. Her mouth was parched and her throat constricted as she threaded her way through IV poles and bedside commodes. She squeezed between two cooling-blanket ..."
"...The door closed behind her with a significant snap, and she looked down a long concrete hallway illuminated intermittently by yellow light bulbs which dangled on cords from the ceiling between pipes and connections of varying sizes. The air in the tunnel was cool and damp, reminding her of the riverside tunnel in Columbus. There was an eerie quality to the light, but it was bright enough that she could tell where to bend over to miss bumping into low pipes, and as she walked, she could see the floor ..."
"...After a time, it seemed as though she had walked farther than the length of the parking lot. She had lost her sense of direction, and it struck her that the tunnel might not go to the maintenance building at all; it could even be a dead end. Her fear was so great that she chilled, and her teeth chattered in her head. ..."
"...Penny wondered what would be the worst thing that could happen? The end of the tunnel might be blocked or locked and she couldn’t get out, and when she went back, the door to the elevator room might be locked and she would finally die down here of dehydration and starvation.... Coming down here was certainly dumb, but she was making it even worse! ..."
"...Finally, not too far ahead, she saw an end to the tunnel. She walked faster, so relieved and anxious to get there that she broke into a run. Breathing hard, she halted in front of a metal door, extended both arms, and pushed against the panic hardware bar. The barrier did not budge, and she couldn’t see well ..."
