Welcome the Task
By Michele Bartmess; as told by Annette Giles
Synopsis: Jennifer Miles, a young woman of twenty-four is spending the summer in Houston, Texas, with her mother’s cousin, Bea McPherson. Jennifer has left behind Steve Rey, whom she is attracted to, but the relationship is unsure. In Houston, she meets handsome Jim Long, who has been wooing her. The bishop of Bea’s ward is the director of the famous Texas Medical Center, and has indicated that it might be possible for Jennifer’s mother to have heart surgery to relieve the serious heart condition from which she is suffering.
One night early in September, Jennifer ventured to ask Bea what her feelings about Dick were.
“What do you mean?” Bea asked guardedly.
