Grace put the final edits on Mr. Clark’s manuscript. A noise made her look up. “Mr. Brown. I’m sorry, father is out at the moment.”
“I know, miss.” I need to confide something in you.”
Her father’s young assistant sat across the desk from her and proceeded to explain how the company was failing due to her father’s bad decisions. “What can we do, Mr. Brown?”
“It’s his health. You’ve been away and haven’t seen the progression, but he’s gotten worse. Forgetful.”
“We must help him!”
“Yes, miss. I don’t want to lose this position.”
“We will save the company!”
