Here is a short snippet from book 2 in the Kennedy Stern Christian suspense series. Kennedy is talking with her lab partner, Reuben.
“So how did you and your family celebrate Christmas back in Kenya?”
“We’d always go up country to my grandfather’s farm.” He shrugged. “It wasn’t all that different from family get-togethers here, I assume. We walked to church on Christmas Eve. On Christmas Day, my grandfather’s first wife would butcher the cow, and then we’d all …”
“You butchered a whole cow?” Kennedy recalled how much of a fuss her mom made over a fifteen-pound turkey.
“Well, I didn’t. Grandma did.”
“How did your family go through that much meat?” Kennedy realized she didn’t even know if Kenyans “up country” would have freezers or even the electricity to run them. Reuben had talked a lot about growing up in the city, but this was the first time he had mentioned anything outside Nairobi.
Reuben laughed. “You’d be surprised at how fast a hundred people can eat a cow.”
Kennedy leaned forward. “Did you say a hundred?”
