Theme Thursday (10)

Theme Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by Reading Between Pages.

Theme Thursdays is a fun weekly event that will be open from one thursday to the next. Anyone can participate in it. The rules are simple:
*A theme will be posted each week (on Thursday’s)
*Select a conversation/snippet/sentence from the current book you are reading
*Mention the author and the title of the book along with your post
*It is important that the theme is conveyed in the sentence (you don’t necessarily need to have the word)
Ex: If the theme is KISS; your sentence can have “They kissed so gently” or “Their lips touched each other” or “The smooch was so passionate”
*This will give us a wonderful opportunity to explore and understand different writing styles and descriptive approaches adopted by authors.

This week's theme is MALE PERSON (Father, Grandfather, Brother etc)

My entry comes from Harvest Moon by Rochelle Alers:

There was a swollen silence before Martin Cole's soft, drawling Southern cadence came through the wire again. "Oscar Spencer is lucky he's dead, or I would break his neck. What the hell kind of life did you have with him where--"

"I don't want to talk about it," Regina snapped angrily, interrupting her father. "He's dead, Daddy. Let him rest in peace."
