the last book I ever read (Mr. and Mrs. Doctor by Julie Iromuanya, excerpt nine)

from Mr. and Mrs. Doctor by Julie Iromuanya:

Job emptied cans of pork and beans into a pot and heated them. After dishing for Ifi, he scraped away the burnt bottoms of the pots. Hot mugs of Ovaltine, sweet with evaporated milk, would finish the meal. Ifi did not eat. She did not drink. Is it because of Cheryl or Victor? he wondered.
