Cain, copyright renewed 1981 by Alice M. Piper Depósito Legal: B. 838-1994 - ISBN: 84-264-1230-0 Printed in Spain Esta historia transcurre en el sur de Maryland, una franja de tierra en la que se asientan cinco pequeños condados, entre los estuarios del Patapsco, del Chesapeake y del Potomac, y que si geográficamente es la región más septentrional del Sur, espiritualmente es su corazón mismo.

Miran para otro lado, o cierran los ojos, o hacen muecas de desagrado como si viesen basura en la calle. Y eso te destroza el corazón. Quizá es que no lo pueden evitar, pero me parece que sí que podrían, si quisieran. ¿Por qué han de comportarse de esa manera? —La gente es así. —Pues usted no. —No sé a qué se refiere. —Ya lo creo que lo sabe, aunque sea tan amable de no decirlo.

Lo interpreté como que insinuaba que no la había consultado y, por mostrarme cordial, le pregunté a qué condado pertenecía el lugar en el que nos encontrábamos. —Al Prince Georges —me contestó—. Es un pequeño rancho. Está a menos de dos kilómetros al norte del pueblo de Clinton, en Maryland, a quince kilómetros al sur de Washington. La carretera que cogió mi marido para traerlo a usted aquí desde Marlboro es la famosa Route 5, el principal acceso al sur de Maryland.
