Chapter One: Summer, 1995

Harriet Frazier tipped a generous portion of whisky from a flask into her steaming cup of tea.

“Whiskey, Nat?” she asked.

Natalie Hughes shook her head and held her hand protectively over her own cup of tea.

“Not even to celebrate your bachelorette status?” asked Harriet, the corner of her mouth twitching in a half-smile almost hidden amongst her wrinkles.

“Now isn’t the time to start. Besides, it’s been almost a year.”

“You hardly act like it,” said Harriet. She put the whiskey flask away high in the cupboard. “I know what I’d be doing if I still had dark hair, high cheekbones, and a perky butt like yours.”


Harriet chuckled.

“It’s just too early, is all,” said Natalie, blowing steam off her tea and rolling the cup in her hands.

“Lemon and honey?”

“Just lemon, thanks.”
