As he had told his ladylove, he was neither a child nor a fool.Therese Raquin
We called my grandmother "Ladylove," because I guess that is what my grandfather called her.
Nobody ever called her anything else but Ladylove, not "Gran'ma" or anything like that.
Just then Ladylove—my grandmother—came out of the side door.
That was the way my grandmother Ladylove was, as old as old, and nobody ever loved trees the way she did.
