This book was a great read. The author writes about her Staab family who emigrated from Germany straight to New Mexico. In the course of telling the story, she says this....... and it piqued my interest big time. I wonder? Do you?
“Ghosts? Imagine a “timeslip” in which the present grazes against
the past. Imagine two clothes lines in a row…. Most of the time the
sheets hang down and are still, but maybe there’s a metaphorical
breeze, a brushing between the sheets…. When the sheets touch
people who don’t live in the same era see each other as
ghosts….strangers in period dress. You peer briefly into their life
and they peer into yours.”
