My Final Thoughts…
With the coming of fall, its falling leaves and brisk winds, also comes all the wonderful fall spices. These would be cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. While I am not sure of any of them single-handedly; in a pumpkin pie, they are nice. For the girl in our story, there may be many pumpkin pies in her future as she gets her strength back.
