I’m going to help you.” Ruth closed her eyes and breathed out. “You are an answer to my prayer.” They drank three cups of tea.

His work is art.” They went past a sprawl of new homes and into a stretch of active construction. The tan sedan slowed, and Annie let off the accelerator slightly. When it turned into a construction zone, Annie drove past. “There’s not much more up here. We’ll go back to Main Street.” Annie pulled to the
