There was something about Grace—a directness, a warmth—that begged the trust of even the newest acquaintance. How could you not confide in someone who regarded you with such compassion, listened with such patience, seemed so rapt with what you said, and always had sensible advice? Francine had considered herself luckier than any of her friends, having a mother in whom she could confide. Nor was the relationship one-sided. As The Confidante broadened its scope, Francine became a resource. She was a teenager, experiencing the same problems about which many of Grace’s readers wrote.
What about her work? ” “None,” Francine vowed, then felt a twinge recalling the column on cat allergies that hadn’t made sense. “Has she been more moody than usual? More demanding? ” “No. Grace is Grace, the same as ever. She does not have Alzheimer’s disease. ” He considered that for a minute, still with his elbows on his knees.

I rewrote the whole column, but transmitted the original. Typical, huh? So Tony’s gloating. ” “Well, do you blame me? He has the emotional drive of a two-year-old and the arrogance of ten men. ” “Too bad,” Sophie said through a yawn. ” She stretched. ” Sophie knew that, and hated it. But Gus excited her. He filled the perverse need she had to tempt the devil and thumb her nose at social constraint.
