    Summary

    At 31, Dani O'Mara is a good wife, a good daughter, a good mother. It's a good life, by all accounts, but yet here she is, lost and increasingly desperate for a different story, for the story she might have had if she hadn't bitten her tongue four years ago.

    Summary

    "Windows in this place are a right bitch, aren't they?"

    She turns toward the voice at her classroom door--a woman's English brogue. It's distinctly, hysterically out of place in Iowa, as is her flippant cursing.

    "Yeah," Dani answers, nodding a bit dumbly.

    "Don't worry…?"

    She seems to be waiting for an introduction.

    "I'm...Dani. Dani Clayton."

    "Jamie Taylor," the woman replies, with a firm handshake. Almost a man's handshake. "And don't you worry, Dani Clayton." She nods at the window, gives it a cheeky grin like it's a misbehaving student. "I can fix that."

    Dani's not sure what happens first: registering new life at her words or forgetting how to breathe.

    Summary

    It’s been long enough that Dani knows all of Jamie’s friends, and long enough that Jamie knows all of Dani’s. It’s been long enough that Dani should have figured out that Jamie isn’t worth it. And yet.

    (no thoughts just fluff)

    Summary

    She had said before, ‘so many people mix up love and possession,’ and now years later she wondered if that was the reason why they had been given so much time. That maybe Viola thought this was love. That maybe she loved this. Loved her. Love them.
