The lady

The book was In My Father’s House by Gabrielle Carey.

The lady, who had been browsing in my shop for a little while, picked it up and stared at it and then placed it on the seat of her walker. She stood looking down at it for a long time. She looked over at me.

She said, ‘I’m pleased with this.’
