Kathy-Diane Leveille
“Elsa's mother no longer spoke to her of men and love, but of duty and fate and accepting one’s burden. As far as Elsa could tell, if love really was the inherited female domain, then women were saddled with the biggest burden of all. It was pressing down upon them, the way the sea pressed down upon the creatures of the deep.”
Kathy-Diane Leveille, Standing in the Whale's Jaw: A Novel

Nancy B. Brewer
“Yet, the quest for knowledge will overcome us and we must know. And, at last, we must see where the road ends, even if it be the cliff.”
Nancy B. Brewer, Garnet
