Beverly, I'm not a big fan of open endings, but your writing certainly evoked place and also sympathy for this woman who could only go where the winds took her and hope for the best. "Housecleaning" was a nice slice of life that most of us know so little about. Thanks.

The life of the "other"--slaves rather than servants--may not be known to us, but humiliation, depersonalization, and degradation are.
