It was a difficult time for Cherry. A time of adjusting. She was trying to adjust to her grandmother’s absence; she missed Granny’s feisty sparkle.

Granny’s best friend had had a son that Cherry had never met. Heard about, but never met. Until recently, when she’d let him know that she knew she was his daughter.
It was a time of adjusting. A time of recurring nightmares with the same scary theme and unexpected visits by those presumed to be gone forever. Dead and gone.

They shared me.
But that fourth guy? The nondescript one in the background in the upper left corner of the screen, just sitting on the couch? The only one who did nothing?
Not one single thing.

Unemployed schoolteacher Erin Jenkins is back in Portland, the town she hasn’t called home for more than a decade.
