“But this part of town, Sister Husband’s part of town, looked like the places where Novalee had lived in Tellico Plains, neighborhoods the color of gravy.”

“Then Moses pressed a button and the top of the camera popped up, making Novalee think of poorly tinted photographs in dark oval frames… men and women posed in stiff collars, their yam-colored faces set with grim-lipped smiles.”

“Home is the place they’ll catch you when you fall and we all fall.”
