    Summary

    The store is busy, and TK mills around, looking at things he can’t quite afford until the clerk behind the counter has a free moment.

    “What can I get for you, sir?” The clerk asks, and TK drums his fingers against the counter.

    “I’m looking for work.”

    The clerk snorts and steps away. “Everyone is lookin’ for work, kid.”

    TK follows him down the counter, dodging a customer who’s asking for a pound of flour and two yards of burlap.

    “I'm desperate,” TK tells him, and the clerk snorts again.

    “Everyone is desperate.”

    “My father is sick, my mother passed, and I have a baby brother—.”

    “Kid,” the clerk says, a spoonful of flour paused above the sack of flour, “everyone’s father is sick. Everyone’s mama just passed. And everyone has a baby brother. Or a son or daughter—someone back home waiting on them to send them money. You’re not special.”

    --

    TK leaves home in search of work. In 1915, he finds himself on a ranch outside of Austin, Texas, working for a family that will change his life forever.

    Oh, I love this one. The style is gorgeous and the way it moves in time creates this perfect melancholic sense of missed opportunity (coalescing into a happy ending!).

    Summary

    "Dark Fate?" says Stede, making sure to pronounce the capitals.

    "Very effective for star-crossed lovers. And at a bargain price, if I do say so myself. A potent mixture of unspeakably rare ingredients, brewed under a new moon, which will drag you through the depths of your own soul in search of difficult truths, and leave the undeserving to drift forever in a dreamscape of torment and emotional agony!"

    "What?" says Stede. "No! That sounds awful!"
