Rachael is struggling to learn the accordion and can probably play along with you on the ukulele. She's a New Zealander as well as an American. She's been known to knit.

“Why did some people hear the voice, loud and clear, while others just floated from thing to thing, from person to person, never completely fitting in, never entirely at home.”
Rachael Herron, Eliza's Home: A Cypress Hollow Novella

“That man loved me so hard I knew I’d never do half of what I should to deserve it. And that was the point. He said I never had to do a thing to make him love me. He just did. He just loved me.”
Rachael Herron, Eliza's Home: A Cypress Hollow Novella

“No, Eliza.” He turned his body toward her. His voice was different. Lower. Rougher. “I’m such an idiot. And I’d like to apologize for my actions in advance. But if I don’t do this, I’m going to lose my ever-lovin’ mind.”
