Description

Excerpt from The Congresswoman Ynthia pike sat beside a window watching a funeral move along the red dirt road which led to town. She knotted her handkerchief into a ball, dabbed her eyes with it, smoothed out the damp rag, sighed, and looked about uneasily. The house seemed curiously still. She had grown so accustomed to the treadmill duties of a nurse that when a pause came, and afterwards a funeral, the sud den inactivity and peace felt like the quieting of an opiate. Through the dull maze of her feelings throbbed a sense of disquiet at the thought of grief being swallowed up by mere thankfulness. As the string of carriages disappeared round a distant corner of the road, she realized that meaner husbands had existed than Bunyan Pike and she wondered why she did not feel the poignant grief and desolation ascribed to widowhood. The bedroom door opened quietly and a woman's face peered in. It was a rugged, un comely face. A strong nose and a square chin were the most prominent features in its archi tecture. Suddenly a. Smile transformed the rough-hewn features, revealing quiet humor in the singularly gray eyes and tenderness in the large, inexorable mouth.
