First Sentence Friday! CHAPTER THIRTEEN

The Stampers have dealt with flooding, the destruction of their home, and find themselves in a real struggle for survival with very little.  Now there’s about to be another change in the weather, which brought to mind Hurricane Sandy in the northeast in late October, 2012.  What made it really tough for them was the weather was already turning cold when it arrived.  I remember watching on TV and seeing camp fires burning in and around neighborhoods so people could stay warm.

Likewise for the Stampers, who are already battling hunger, cold is also their enemy.

Chapter Thirteen

The night after I’d chased Leland Tew off, a stiff wind *blowed in out of the north, a sure sign winter would come soon.
