A Harvest Passion - Emily Murdoch

"Do it for England."




Leo has gone to the school house on Monday morning.  It's been closed up and is dirty, so he sets about cleaning it.  It's still blazing hot even early in the morning -- this constant reminding of the boiling heat is tiresome; I'm in Arizona where it's still 90+ at the end of October -- so he goes to open the windows. . . .


They had been closed for quite some time, but there was no water in them to swell them up in their panes. The muscles in his arms throbbed, but the windows were forced open –

Murdoch, Emily. A Harvest Passion (Kindle Locations 216-218). Endeavour Press. Kindle Edition.



Windows don't swell in the panes.  The sashes and rails swell around the panes and within the frames.
