PART 2, THE FIRST EVIL, 1931-1933: Chapter 51 (UNEDITED)

Chapter 51 is finally here (all of it)! If you are just catching up, see the  CHAPTERS section  or scroll to previous posts (in case I don't update the CHAPTERS section right away) to read the Prologue-Chapter 50 before proceeding. Also, check out some further character development in some excerpts from the second draft in the  SAMPLES section.   Otherwise, read from the word go :) As I said before, we are in the home stretch here and Book 1 will be wrapping here soon!  I'm also on some other cool book projects too so stay tuned for those as well. :) Remember as you read: NOTHING in here is filler.  Everything experienced by the characters has a purpose whether we see that purpose immediately or later on in the book or series.  :) I'm also set up on Smashwords and Wattpad now and I'll be posting those links soon. :) CHAPTER 51 Linda rushed to the closet to grab some clothes for her and Dorothy. It was difficult to find clothes that woul
