    Summary

    She gestured, and the grandchild appeared. Grandma Harken took the time to finally look at the child—a girl, delicate as a quail, probably older than she looked. […] “She’s got desert in her, not steel.” Grandma nodded. She was something of an authority on the subject. “I’ll send her to you,” said Anna. “Like hell you will!” Grandma scowled over her tea. “I don’t need a girl and I’m hard to live with. And I’ll probably die running after mockingbirds.” “Then you’ll want somebody to point to where the body fell,” said Anna. She waved a hand. “Not now. Later. Soon, I think, but not yet. After you’ve dealt with this foolishness, perhaps.” “I said—” “You get your answer and she gets a teacher,” said Anna. “Fair trade.” Grandma Harken glowered, but she knew that Anna had her in a hard place. And the girl like a quail needed…something. “She broke her arm when she was small,” said Anna quietly. “She’s got cholla ribs for bones. We didn’t let the doctor see. I set it myself.” Grandma sucked the air in between her teeth. That was immense power and vulnerability, all at once. That was a child that should never be taken out of the desert. That was someone a little more like Grandma Harken than either of them were like fully human folk.

    Daniel gets one chance to do the night over and save his little brother but the task proves much more difficult than he thought.

    Summary

    Cancer had taken Harlan's wife and his son, and money had taken the rest of them - that's how he used to put it. "Money is cancer," he'd finally landed upon, on one gloomy night up in the attic. "It's freedom in a cage, Marta. Practically speaking, it's power and it's influence - but if you're not careful, it'll get in your lungs and shrivel up your organs." He'd shuddered dramatically. "Disgusting stuff. I should give it all to UNESCO and move to a home."
