"We ran home for you, Mr. Salmon." (17.79)


And a good thing, too! Lindsey is a sensitive daughter, and she knows her dad could literally have a heart attack if she's too late and can't be found.

Quote #2

"Now I am in the place I call this wide wide Heaven because it includes all my simplest desires but also the most humble and grand. The word my grandfather uses is comfort. (Epilogue.15)
