The First Few Lines of “One Short Day”

“I was born in a house with a golden plaque on it which said that it could not be destroyed. It was an old farm house, the Bliss Homestead, surrounded by cornfields. My parents bought the house from the last member of the Bliss family on a promise that they would restore it. They worked on it for ten years and did such a good job that their story was featured in a magazine. We moved and when the cornfields became subdivisions and the house was surrounded by subdivisions, they tore down the Bliss Homestead like the last weed.

“My father was Elijah White, son of Abraham White. My mother was Susan. I am their son, Joseph.”

– One Short Day, “One Harsh Winter”, Chapter 1, pg. 1, ¶ 1-2, Caleb Warner
