Heaven Adjacent

Heaven Adjacent by Catherine Ryan Hyde

Three Months After The Move

Chapter One
When Somebody Hands You A Fish

Roseanna was standing under the barely warm water in her tiny, cold makeshift shower when the bell at the gate began to clang.

She cursed to herself a few times, under her breath but out loud, rinsing off more or less all at once and grabbing a towel. She stepped out into her shabby and small add-on bathroom, toweled her hair briefly, then wrapped the towel around herself.
