I do think there. Or maybe it's really meditation, bc I just sit. At this time of the year, it's warm and peaceful. The air is fresh, the birds sing. I guess the point is — in modern life, how many times do we sit and do nothing? It's a great thing. :)(less)

"Loved It!

Twists, turns, and outrageous plot devices, all made delightful fully probable and tied up with a bright happily ever after bow. Dodd never disappoints."

"I enjoyed this adventurous tale. It's kind of a throwback to "old school" romance, a bit predictable, but so much fun! There were a couple of grammatical and continuity errors, but they weren't bad enough to drive me crazy or distract me from the..." Read more of this review »

“They hit a pothole deep enough to make her teeth snap together, and she burst out, "This road reminds me of my life. It's going somewhere familiar, but every time I look up, there's a new obstacle to jump, another hole to fall in.”

“All I wanted was a man who could love and who loved me, who I could share my secrets with and know his.”
Christina Dodd, Virtue Falls

“For as long as I could remember, I had always been the girl who had watched her father kill her mother.”
Christina Dodd, Virtue Falls

“Elizabeth understood as she never had before. Everyone, all of them had lived secure in the belief that the earth was stable, unchanging, eternal.
Now no one could trust the ground beneath their feet.
Yes, the earthquake was the story of destruction, but not just of things. An earthquake destroyed security. It destroyed complacency. It changed the people who lived through it.”
Christina Dodd, Virtue Falls

“It was like living with a bad action movie, all excitement and motion, and no character development.”
Christina Dodd, Virtue Falls

“No matter how they fought they had always been like this: balanced between anger and passion, between hurt and glory.
When they first got together, she didn't understand how two people who had so little in common could be so madly, passionately in love.
When they split, she had realized madness and passion could never keep a couple together.”
Christina Dodd
