“You might have to live with this fear inside you for a long time.”
Cindy Baldwin, Where the Watermelons Grow

“I hadn’t been sticky and salty, my hair clinging to my skin all around my head till I wanted to cut it as short as Daddy’s just”
Cindy Baldwin, Where the Watermelons Grow

“What I wanted was a cure—not something that would work for just a year or two at a time, like Mama’s medicines. Something that would heal forever, so we never had to worry again.”
Cindy Baldwin, Where the Watermelons Grow
