Jennifer Flowers of Angier holds a bundle of tobacco outside the pack house on her family’s farm. Her father’s initials are painted near the door.

Though their lives were very different, she recognized as a child that they were basically the same people. Flowers wonders what became of Linda, the friend she never saw again.
