They pulled their hoods up and tromped out of the house, following footsteps through the deep snow around to the back, where a shed sat next to an abandoned outhouse. Frank was up on a ladder, using a shovel with his only arm to clear the roof of the rickety shed. He was leaning precariously to one side. Progress was extremely slow. Jack stood at the bottom of the ladder with hands on hips. You could fall and break the only arm you have left.
Frank looked down at them. You oughta know that. Now, get off that goddamn ladder. Frank swore, but he left the shovel lying on the roof of the shed and started down.
Maybe she can find you one. Or at least get you moved up on the list. Then he opened the door to the shed and peered inside at an impressive stack of split logs. With one hand? Jack laughed in spite of himself. We should go. We should stay through this emergency. Late is better than too soon… The unexpected twist was that Becca was arguing for staying and Denny for leaving. They pulled up to the house right next to the Hummer. The Thicksons lived on a big piece of property on the outskirts of town.
A little house was burrowed into a large copse of trees at the end of a long drive that had been recently plowed. Denny deposited her along with her crutches onto the narrow porch and went back for the bag of canned soup. She gave two knocks and opened the door. Just a quick glance told her the Thicksons were poor—the floors were scarred wood, covered by a thread-bare rug, a lamp without a shade sat atop a barrel covered by cloth, the appliances were very dated. Mel was kneeling on the floor beside Megan, who was using a small, sagging couch as her bed.
Open your mouth and let me have a look. He put the bag of canned soup on the table next to the big box Jack had delivered. Becca stood, waiting, balanced on her crutches, while Mel checked Megan, listening to her chest, looking in her ears.
A few moments passed, then Dr. Michaels poked his head into the living room. When Mel went into the bedroom, Megan noticed Becca and her little face lit up. I tried not to! You never know where germs come from. Chances are she had a cough. Or at least a sniffle. What do you think? She shook her head. We might be stuck another day. Mel came back into the room. She handed a couple of bottles to Becca.
Your mom is coming. Jeremy will be here with you and your dad. Probably the little boys will be back home tomorrow, the next day at the latest. You understand? And your mom will call you from the hospital to let you know the little boys are just fine. Give him the medicine. Make sure these little ones are getting what they need. Tell him Jeremy has been dosed and should stay in bed.
He gets more Tylenol and cough syrup in four hours. And try not to breathe the air if you can help it. No kissing sick kids, no matter how tempting! Mel disappeared into the bedroom. In just seconds, Cameron Michaels came through the living room, carrying a child wrapped in a blanket. Right on his heels came Mel, also carrying a little boy.
Can you remember that? Michaels and Mel know exactly what to do. She wanted to throw down the crutches and walk; she wanted to carry one of these children to safety.
Make yourself useful. He grinned. Denny chuckled and started moving toward the house with his load of wood. Frank followed and Denny slowed. You ever keep a garden?
Very interesting work. I served two tours in the sandbox with the Marines—I know an unfortunate number of guys with missing limbs. You could at least talk to Jilly. You could at least try. Denny stopped. Denny lifted both brows. A brain that works, eyes that see, ears that hear, two legs and one arm, for starters. A lot of people would give their right arm for that. He walked right past Frank on his way back to get another load. Denny heard a sound and turned to look back.
He saw Dr. Michaels and Mel hustling out to the Hummer, carrying small children. He moved back toward the house and Frank. The doctor lifted his bundle into the back of the Hummer before he addressed Frank. They both need X-rays and antibiotic therapy. Casey: Ryder Slater Brothers 4 E.

I love Virgin River and can't wait for the next 3 to come out. They are always moved to the front of my TBR file. BMHfC is deserving of a high mark, but not as good as many others in the series.
