I finally found this novel excerpt from Mazie Louise Montgomery, which I have been trying to find for a while after I read part of and then forgot what it was but had the feeling that I wanted to read the rest of it. It was a moderate-to-strong desire to find the excerpt and read it and I spent perhaps 15 minutes clicking on people's blog links and doing Googles searches to find it. I couldn't remember who it was by, only that the author had a name with three names and that she was female, and that the main character was named Dominica who was a teacher in Staten Island.
I asked Stephen Lewis about this several times and I think I annoyed him. I also asked Zachary German about it and I am pretty sure I always annoy him. I found it because Ryan Manning interviewed Mazie here and I have that blog in my Google Reader. I saw Mazie's names and thought, That was her; now I have the missing piece to the puzzle. I should have thought to ask Ryan about it a long time again.
