Great. 舡 Meredith wasn舗t surprised. 舡 She left her father in the living room and walked through the kitchen to the formal dining room. Through the French doors, she saw an expanse of snow-covered ground, with acres of dormant apple trees in the distance. Closer, beneath the icicle-draped branches of a fifty-year-old magnolia tree, was a small rectangular garden defined by antique wrought-iron fencing. Its ornate gate was twined with brown vines; come summer, that gate would be a profusion of green leaves and white flowers.
Leaving the room, she clicked the door shut behind her and headed down the hallway toward the stairs. In the pale glow of a pair of long-outdated night-lights, she passed the closed doors of her children舗s bedrooms. Not that they were children anymore. Jillian was nineteen now, a sophomore at UCLA who dreamed of being a doctor, and Maddy舒Meredith舗s baby舒was eighteen and a freshman at Vanderbilt. Without them, this house舒and Meredith舗s life舒felt emptier and quieter than she舗d expected. For nearly twenty years, she had devoted herself to being the kind of mother she hadn舗t had, and it had worked.
It was an image that captured a universal feminine connection. She heard Danny come up beside her. 舡 She leaned against him, feeling good about her shots. 舠I just love how they are with their kids, even when the odds are impossible. The only time I cry is when I see their faces with their babies. 舡 舠So it舗s mothers you follow. 舡 Nina frowned. She舗d never thought of it that way, and the observation was unsettling. 舠Not always mothers. Women fighting for something. 舡 He smiled. 舡 She laughed. 舡 She put her camera equipment away and repacked their gear while Danny spoke to the village elder and thanked him for the pictures.
