Roman Charity by Jean-Jacques Bachelier

Roman Charity by Jean-Jacques Bachelier (1724-1806)

“Then slowly she lay down beside him. He shook his head slowly from side to side. Rose of Sharon loosened one side of the blanket and bared her breast. ‘You got to,’ she said. She squirmed closer and pulled his head close. ‘There!’ she said. ‘There.’ Her hand moved behind his head and supported it. Her fingers moved gently in his hair. She looked up and across the barn, and her lips came together and smiled mysteriously” —The Grapes of Wrath, Steinbeck
