“Though Anne was born in Alabama and schooled in Mississippi, she had traveled north, and, like many southerners, gained a theoretical understanding of the concept of cold. But the mind is an overprotective parent. What it doesn’t care for, it hides. Like many inhabiting the subtropics, Anne had repressed the reality of subzero mercury.”
