let me start doubting now.”
A few cool raindrops fell on her upturned face, blending with

from the foul-smelling culvert through which she’d just crept. Some
of the smell clung to her shoes and the bottom of her peasant’s skirt,
but it was Belgian dirt, so she wouldn’t complain. The prayer and
the contents of her satchel reminded her why she was here, in this

everyone she knew—all to get to this very spot.
