As out of place as a river bass in a teacup. That’s what I was. From my mint green nails to my blue Converse sneakers.

Yet here I was at a formal tea in a Victorian garden with my future in-laws.

Chicago. March 17th, 1960

 

Mrs. O’Toole set the newspaper down on the table beside his steaming mug of coffee and Doran glanced at the headlines. Something about three women from Riverside being murdered and Eisenhower endorsing Nixon. He turned away from the paper with a sigh. Continue reading “Not Quite Done”

She still couldn’t believe her best friend had tried to Continue reading “Stand Up”
