Gloria shut the door behind her as she exited Cutter's office, feeling like an ambassador of goodwill who had not managed to create any goodwill at all. She hadn't expected it to be so hard, this business of reconciliation. In Eckerd, when she was high on that mountaintop with her Jesus, the thought of coming back and putting things right with Cutter, her mother, and Tracy all seemed so simple. How different things looked from the trenches, where the mud could be ankle deep and coat everything, including your perspective.
