Chapter 12

Marie's father swore he didn't hate her mother for leaving. But Marie didn't totally buy that. She caught him ripping up their wedding photos and sending the clothes she left behind to the Salvation Army. He had Marie help put her clothes in boxes which she found quite difficult. She asked her father where her mother went. He didn't know. Sometimes people just have to get away, he told her.
