She’s a little late and the lunch crowd is pretty much gone. Better late than never! I remembered it, of course, the graphic violence stayed with me.

Sybil dies in convulsions in Sara’s arms as she bleeds out on the bathroom floor. I’ve loved everything I’ve ever read of hers, spaughter this was no exception.
