The book was very carefully propped up out of the way on her kitchen counter. Its pages were tattered and yellowed, and Daphne was treating it with the utmost of care. It had belonged to her father, and his grandmother before him; names carefully inscribed inside the front cover going back several generations.

With no small bit of trepidation, Izabel left her quarters to meet Vera at the main gates.
It's got to be better than crawling down a fire escape, she told herself as Vera came into view.
