“I have been looking everywhere for the last Elswyth Thane book, “Homing”, my sister sighed.
As soon as I got home I asked my brilliant techno-internet-kitchen-remodeling husband if he could do a search for this book, I was wildly interested in getting it.
About a month past and it was my birthday and a large box appeared in front of our house. It was addressed to my husband. I dragged it in the house and waited for his lunch hour to give him a call.
“A huge box arrived for you….” I started. His joy and anticipation flew through the phone,
“Open it! Open it! You will be SO pleased! I looked and looked to get this for you!”
I opened the box, half dreading more dishes; it was a box of books.
“Books!” I exclaimed happily but a little confused. I love books but this seemed a random collection.
“I had to buy the whole lot in order to get you the one book you really wanted, “Homing”. Happy birthday, Love!”
