“Freda was a dazzle, a virtual watercolor of a woman
whose moods and mannerisms were as electric as her wild black hair.
Her grin alone, a flash of Ipana-white teeth, head tossed back, stopped
men in their tracks, delayed them in traffic, and threatened their wives so completely even the milkman was not allowed to deliver at Freda’s house.”
– Lorian Hemingway,
Walk on Water, p. 39
