A great deal of emphasis is placed on 'sweet' and 'pretty' in this novel. Each description is aimed at drawing the reader into an old fashioned world where life was slower and even the 'air' was beautiful: naturally it was not, but it doesn't hurt to...more

This is a raw passionate read. That said let me add that I do not believe this author meant all of her lines to be taken literally, no, five-year-olds, as a rule, cannot carry the weight of babies, fouteen-year-olds cannot, commonly, land jobs, even...more

Quirky and original, with a very clever plot. This book is humorous, and packed with human insight. Granted, it's a Romance novel, but truly the label's stereotype fails as description. I loved the romantic tension, the inclusion of Celtic lore, the...more

Tom Lichtenberg
“There are no lessons to be learned from the past. This is the first thing I learned from it. There is nothing back then that there isn't here now. There is nothing here now - nothing that matters - that wasn't back then. What matters. Are you a good person? Do you have any love in your heart? What would you do in a given circumstance? It all comes down to something like that.”
Tom Lichtenberg, Time Zone

Tom Lichtenberg
“If there was a God he reasoned it would have the same relation to us as we have to blades of grass. Do we make them grow? Yes in the sense that we water the lawn. Do we care for them and worry over them? Again as a lawn but not as individual blades. We don't give them names. We just want them to look nice and green. A God who created the earth would want it to look nice an blue from space. He would sit back after a long day of creating things and think to himself now that's what a planet should look like.”
Tom Lichtenberg, Time Zone

Oscar Wilde
“I am so clever that sometimes I don't understand a single word of what I am saying.”
Oscar Wilde, The Happy Prince and Other Stories

Bernard Cornwell
“Life is a jest of the Gods and there is no justice. You must learn to laugh… or else you'll weep yourself to death.”
Bernard Cornwell, The Winter King

Joseph Conrad
“Being a woman is a terribly difficult task, since it consists principally in dealing with men.”
Joseph Conrad
