Today's Read: The Threadbare Heart by Jennie Nash

My name is Lily, a math professor married to a biology professor. When we made plans to go to California to visit my mother and our kids, I thought it would be just like any other Christmas. We'd see the boys and their wives, spend time with our granddaughter, and then return to New England. Now Tom, that quiet husband of mine, is talking about buying an avocado farm. I am feeling lost.

They slipped off the deck into the [avocado] orchard, and by the time Tom emerged, he was thinking about mashed avocados and running a small ranch in a place where fog was the worst weather you would ever expect and no one cared a whit about an integrated science curriculum or the role that freshman biology played in weeding out students who couldn't handle the premed curriculum.
