Fever - Mary Beth Keane

'Mary knew woman were suppose to be the softer sex, a species so warm and nurturing that god granted them the gift of bearing children, caring for them, looking after a home, nursing the sick to health. But sometimes Alfred made her so angry that all the warmth went out of her body and instead her thoughts became murderous, if she managed to have thoughts at all.'
