Looking for a Place to Die - Claire Polders
My memories and I sleepwalk into town, arm in arm, down the street of black stockings and long skirts, our flat heels click-clacking on the cobblestones.

Horse carriages—the sting of dung—thunder by, so loud that talking to our sisters becomes impossible.
