In court just a few months after the accident, the facts, that which Gordon had always relied on as his best defense, would be turned to Theory[001-112] 6/5/01 11:58 AM Page 12 12 JACQUELYN MITCHARD work against him. And they would seem poised to work against him decisively, elegantly, just as Georgia’s leukocytes, her body’s sworn defenders, had turned collaborators with her illness, doing just what cells should do, but more avidly, with more precision. The judge would suggest an interpretation of law that no one could argue was not literally true, but which might have the power to blight both the future and also the past for Gordon and his family.

Mark ended up thinking the sun rose and set on her. But even after Gordie came—and despite the many weekends he’d spent on the farm with her own boys and the hopes Nora had that they’d all moved into territory with a shared border—Mark and Lorraine and their children still mostly kept themselves to themselves, as if the four of them made their own country.
