Sundays are book club Sunday's on Createyou86. Unfortunately I could not post yesterday so here we are on monday with the part 3 synopsis of The Truth About Love and Lightning.
The Ghost pages 119 - 194 synopsis
The ghost is based on the man who appeared on the farm following the tornado. The ghost is thought to be Sam Winston who Abby believes to be her father. Sam went away to Africa, and hadn't been heard from in fourty years. Everyone believed him to be dead. The crazy part is that Sam is not truly Abby's father, her mother just told her that because she was pressured into giving the name, and most people in town assumed. The signs are becoming more and more clear that this man is Sam. Abby takes the man for a walk in the walnut grove to find the spot where the storm dropped him. They found the exact spot, and the turquoise necklace which Sam would have worn in that spot as well.
Gretchen's old friend Frank who also happens to be the town sheriff stops by to make sure the house and ladies are ok after the storm. Frank gets very upset that the ladies are letting a mysterious man stay at their home, and decides that the best course of action is to come back, and to fingerprint the man to find out who he is. The man who might be Sam also has the teardrop shaped mole on the base of his neck which the real Sam would have had. However, his feet and hands are so badly burnt that there is no match in the system. Frank suggests a DNA test which Gretchen narrowly escapes claiming possible harm to Abby's baby, and Frank agrees.
My favorite quote from this section is:
It was strange, she thought, how sometimes blood mattered less when it came to family than who loved you enough to stick around.
