I'm reading Blanche on the Lam (Blanche White #1).


Chapter 4:

In the morning, Blanche put on underwear still slightly damp from last night's washing. While she sipped her first cup of tea at the kitchen table, she listened for voices, footsteps, or the sound of water running overhead. Nothing. Ordinarily, she'd have flipped on the radio and twiddled the dial until she found something other than hillbilly music and preaching. Radio--especially late-night radio, when she could pick up stations from California and French-speaking stations fro Quebec--soothed and energized her.
