Quotation

"Mary looked up at the ceiling and thought that what her daughter could not understand was what it had been like to be so famished. Almost fifty years of being parched. At her husband's forty-first birthday surprise party-and Mary had been so proud to make it for his forty-first so he'd be really surprised, and boy he was really surprised-she had noticed how he did not dance with her, not once. Later she realized he was just not in love with her." page 132
