The Way West (1955)

the darker flow of hills beyond. A pale star winked above the rim of them.
After a while Mercy came and lowered by her. What she had been doing Rebecca didn't know, maybe making neat the bed that she and Brownie slept in. Neither spoke. It struck Rebecca that both were letting rest seep in, drawing on it with their breath, fetching it with eyes that found it in the softened dark.
She felt the presence by her. Mercy McBee. Mercy McBee Evans. Daughter-in-law. Coming motherwhich, unless somebody told him, Lije wouldn't know until the blind could see. Men had no eye for that.
Knowing, Lije would holler, for he loved children. Knowing more, he'd raise a ruckus. He'd say no son of his would raise a wood's colt. Men got mighty righteous when girls were caught because of doing things the men had begged them to.
Beyond her soreness, beyond the roily tenderness she felt for Mercy, she saw Lije pawing up the dust, saw him with understanding, with another tenderness. Men were men, and he couldn't help that he was one, nor would she change him if she could. He was a better man than most, the best to her of any, and, barring trifles, she had never kept a secret from him.
A baby was crying out somewhere in the darkness, its voice a thin wail over other voices. "Sight of young'uns," Rebecca said to Mercy. "Don't look like it'll take long to settle Oregon."
" Ma," Mercy said. It was the first time she had used the name.
" Yes, Mercy," Rebecca answered, touched that she had done so.
" I-I think I'm going to have a baby."
