In AHR Book I, in the chapter titled, “Leftover”, Embry describes being forced to sleep outside of closed door room due to her grandfather moving in with the family. Initially, Embry slept on the pictured couch which was covered with a blanket and her Road Runner cartoon pillow.
After a while, Embry’s parents bought her a cot on which to sleep. This was before her bed was moved into the dining room. The photo shows Embry at bedtime. At bedtime, Embry’s mother often sat a bit with them and often shared things with Embry while they both watched over Fern. This was a special time for Embry and her mother and she took the opportunity to take a photo this particular evening.
