I know some readers said this was a slow starter, but I was intrigued from the very beginning. Each character was so clearly drawn, and their different voices so specific, that I was drawn in immediately.

Hoffman did a wonderful job of interweaving im

Wendell Berry
“Don't own so much clutter that you will be relieved to see your house catch fire.”
Wendell Berry, Farming: a hand book

Jane Austen
“The more I know of the world, the more I am convinced that I shall never see a man whom I can really love. I require so much!”
Jane Austen, Sense And Sensibility

Elizabeth Berg
“You are born into your family and your family is born into you. No returns. No exchanges.”
Elizabeth Berg, The Art of Mending

Mary Stewart
“Every life has death and every light has shadow. Be content to stand in the light and let the shadow fall where it will.”
Mary Stewart, The Hollow Hills

C.S. Lewis
“But, first, remember, remember, remember the signs. Say them to yourself when you wake in the morning and when you lie down at night, and when you wake in the middle of the night. And whatever strange things may happen to you, let nothing turn your mind from following the signs. And secondly, I give you a warning. Here on the mountain I have spoken to you clearly: I will not often do so down in Narnia. Here on the mountain, the air is clear and your mind is clear; as you drop down into Narnia, the air will thicken. Take great care that it does not confuse your mind. And the signs which you have learned here will not look at all as you expect them to look, when you meet them there. That is why it is so important to know them by heart and pay no attention to appearances. Remember the signs and believe the signs. Nothing else matters.”
C.S. Lewis, The Chronicles of Narnia
