Leaving the Hall Light On by Madeline Sharples
"As much as I liked this book I found myself sad for the author in the end due to her opinion that there is no God."
More of Madeline's books…
“Nearly every writer writes a book with a great amount of attention and intention and hopes and dreams. And it's important to take that effort seriously and to recognize that a book may have taken ten years of a writer's life, that the writer has put heart and soul into it. And it behooves us, as book-review-editors, to treat those books with the care and attention they deserve, and to give the writer that respect."
Pamela Paul, New York Times Book Review editor, in a Poets & Writer's interview
(something for all reviewers to think about)”
Madeline Sharples, Leaving the Hall Light On

“Way I was walking I was thinking I was running I was sinking You were laughing You were loving I was pushing I was shoving If you’re wondering How I’m feeling Same old thing I ain’t healing If you’re hungry I can feed you Please don’t think That I don’t need you And I let you walk away… Now you can go your own way.”
Madeline Sharples, Leaving the Hall Light on

“Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans.”
