did nobody edit this

....she saw her friend and neighbor....He was kneeling beside her, watching, his kind eyes life preservers thrown to a drowning woman. She held them. 
(Louise Penny, A Trick of the Light)

Uncharacteristically, I kept on reading, because I'm getting the flu and want some brain candy, and actually the book picked up quite a bit and got fairly good. (Except she tends to write in sentences. Like this. To increase the tension. I think. Except. It makes me want to punch something.) BUT, SWEET BABY JESUS. SHE HELD HIS KIND LIFE PRESERVER EYES.
