“I haven't felt like part of the living world these last years. I go out and walk around, but it's hard when you feel the best times of your life have happened already.

—Eloise Munn”
Maureen Sherry, Walls Within Walls

“was thinking about us doing business together, about this apartment, how you had turned into such a big shot that you had probably changed and what if you weren’t the Belle I remembered? But then you dropped your earring on your plate and your hose was torn and you seemed so clumsy and adorable and it reminded me that you’re so capable and so vulnerable all at the same time.”
Maureen Sherry, Opening Belle: A Novel

Maureen Sherry, Opening Belle: A Novel
