Excerpt from Pushed and the Return Push
I stood at the door of the village's one café and watched two of our batteries pass. The good woman who kept it asked if I thought the Germans would come there again. They took my husband with them a prisoner when they went a year ago, ... she said slowly. My trust in our strength as I had seen it six months before helped me to reassure her; but to change the subject, I turned to the penny-in-the-slot music machine inside, the biggest, most gaudily painted musical box I've ever seen. Did the Boches ever try this? I asked. No, only once, she replied, brightening. They had a mess in the next room, and never came in here.
