1 Ethan stood before the door, his head heavy with dreams, his arm still about Mattie.
2 It was a slow trudge home through the heavy fields, and when the two men entered the kitchen Mattie was lifting the coffee from the stove and Zeena was already at the table.
3 The fitful bursts of sleet had changed into a steady rain and the horses had heavy work even without a load behind them.
4 "That pie of yours always sets a mite heavy, Matt," she said, not ill-naturedly.
5 "That trunk of yours is too heavy for the sleigh, and Dan'l Byrne'll be round to take it over to the Flats," she said.
6 They had reached the point where the road dipped to the hollow by Ethan's mill and as they descended the darkness descended with them, dropping down like a black veil from the heavy hemlock boughs.
7 In her face were too sharply blended the delicate features of her mother, a Coast aristocrat of French descent, and the heavy ones of her florid Irish father.
8 "There's none in the County can touch you, nor in the state," he informed his mount, with pride, the brogue of County Meath still heavy on his tongue in spite of thirty-nine years in America.
9 Gerald was a small man, little more than five feet tall, but so heavy of barrel and thick of neck that his appearance, when seated, led strangers to think him a larger man.
10 The heavy mahogany table and sideboards, the massive silver, the bright rag rugs on the shining floor were all in their accustomed places, just as if nothing had happened.
11 A balmy, soft warmth poured into the room, heavy with velvety smells, redolent of many blossoms, of newly fledged trees and of the moist, freshly turned red earth.
12 She pushed open the door, listened and heard Mammy's heavy tread in the downstairs hall.
13 Scarlett thought she had never seen a man with such wide shoulders, so heavy with muscles, almost too heavy for gentility.
14 The barbecue had reached its peak and the warm air was full of laughter and talk, the click of silver on porcelain and the rich heavy smells of roasting meats and redolent gravies.
15 Instead, she walked out of the room with such dignity as she could summon and banged the heavy door behind her.
