1. “I used to talk to the wind when I was a child,” she said as she watched the storm building on the horizon. “I wish I’d noticed when it stopped listening.”

2. Family drama is an inescapable constant. If it’s not the cousins feuding, it’s the great-aunts, all goaded into action by a matriarch who lives for “solving” conflicts.
