Moonlight Plains

Cover of book Moonlight Plains
Authors:
Categories: Fiction
It was one of those days when she longed to be free of the constraints of her ageing body, to be done with over-friendly jolly nurses and the dour fragile inmates of the nursing home, one of those da...ys when she couldn’t forget the gloomy fact that she and the other old folk were all here waiting to die.
    She knew she should be grateful that she’d lived a long life and that she wasn’t like poor Dulcie White, Sally’s grandmother, who had no real idea of where she was now or why. She knew that she should remember with gratitude the busy, laughter-filled days of the past when she and Andy had raised their large and lively brood at Moonlight Plains.
    Today, however, she felt frustrated by her feebleness and annoyed that she was unable to walk without hanging onto someone or something, and that she had to eat what was put in front of her, like a helpless child.
    When Luke telephoned her with the news about the American letter, she was thinking about how nice it would be to just pop off in her sleep as Andy had.
