“Suddenly it seemed to me that I looked back from a great distance on that smile and saw it all again - the smile and the day, the whole sunny, sad, funny, wonderful day and all the days that we had spent here together. What was I going to do when such days came no more? There could not be many; for we were a family growing old. And how would I learn to live without these people? I who needed them so little that I could stay away all year - what should I do without them?”
Jetta Carleton, The Moonflower Vine

In Number 8, a window on the first floor was lit up, gold and cozy and dangerous as hell.”
Tana French, Faithful Place

Mindi Scott, Freefall

A.B. Shepherd
“He took his time looking around for anything interesting to salvage, but found only broken bits of what once was.”
A.B. Shepherd, The Beacon
