A Killing Frost: A Novel
Alone, on long November weekend, Miss Liz shares memories with her granddaughter Ramie--some happy, some disturbing--of her husband, of her addlebrained daughter Maylean, and of Ramie's shadowy father. Miss Liz is sturdy and country-wise. The devotion of grandmother and granddaughter has withstood separation and weathered the storms of Miss Liz's groundless fears. Yet, in the December of this story, that devotion is badly strained when Miss Liz deserts Ramie for the temptations of old age when she wanders alone, and lingers too long, in those old memories.
