Not sure why the title of this book intrigued me, maybe because it's another historical novel, or maybe the idea of a Mrs. Tom Thumb was the intrigue, but I wasn't disappointed. I felt that the author did a great job of giving life to the characters ...more

Washington Irving
“A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.”
Washington Irving

Gertrude Stein
“We are always the same age inside. ”
Gertrude Stein

Susan Cain
“Introverts, in contrast, may have strong social skills and enjoy parties and business meetings, but after a while wish they were home in their pajamas. They prefer to devote their social energies to close friends, colleagues, and family. They listen more than they talk, think before they speak, and often feel as if they express themselves better in writing than in conversation. They tend to dislike conflict. Many have a horror of small talk, but enjoy deep discussions.”
Susan Cain, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking

Alfred Tennyson
“Hope
Smiles from the threshold of the year to come,
Whispering 'it will be happier'...”
