Cindy said, "Mrs.Kitteridge, did you get married? Tom said he heard you married Jack Kennison [...] She said, "Yes, it's true. I have married Jack Kennison." [...] we're both old enough to know things now, and that's good."

"What things?"

"When to shut up, mainly"

"What things do you shut up about?" Cindy asked [...] "Well, for example, when he has his breakfast, I don't say to him, Jack, why the hell do you have to scrape your bowl so hard" [...] Imagine at my age, starting over again [...] "But it's never starting over, Cindy, it's just continuing on."

"Dad! They called you Frenchie?" Oh sure, Denny said, with a chuckle. "It's not funny," his son had said, adding, "Mrs. Kitteridge, way back in seventh grade, she told us this country was supposed to be a melting pot, but it never melted, and she was right," and he had gotten up and walked away, leaving Denny with his yearbook open on the kitchen table.

Mrs. Kitteridge was wrong. Times changed.

But Denny [...] now saw his son's point: To be called "Frenchie" was no longer acceptable. What Denny's son had not understood was that Denny had never had his feelings hurt by being called "Frenchie." As Denny kept walking, digging his hands deeper into his pockets, he began to wonder if this was true. He realized: What was true was that he, Denny, had accepted it.

Olive was telling Jack about the Somalis, who had moved here more than fifteen years ago, how it had caused a ruckus at first, Maine being such a white, white state. "And old," Olive added. But the Somalis were very entrepreneurial, according to Olive, and had started a bunch of businesses in town.

Halima looked concerned. "I don't like that," she said. "You should not be living alone."

Olive made a noise of disgust, waving her hand to indicate that this was a stupid thing to say. But Halima sat forward, pointing a finger at Olive. "In my culture," she said, "you would never be alone."

Olive didn't care for that. "Well, in my culture," Olive said, pointing her own finger toward the woman, "sons get married, go away, and never come back."

"Well, Mom, he's probably sad about his wife," and Olive had said, "But, Chris, he walks around weeping!" And Christopher had said it was cultural. "Cultural?" Olive demanded. "What in hell does that mean?" Christopher said it meant the guy was Jewish, and Jewish men weren't ashamed to cry.

"I'm just so scared," she said. "I'm so scared!"

"I understand that. You have every reason to feel scared. But you're going to be all right." Bernie said this gently. "I've known you for years, Suzanne. And you have always been focused and smart, and you're going to be just fine. You're in the middle of a storm at the moment."
