A charming and sweet novel about "misfits" during World War II in England. I felt like it started rather slow, but I gained momentum as the book progressed and I got to know the characters/ Lissa Evans does a good job with fleshing her characters out ...more

Another dystopian novel with some great ideas that fell just short of being fully developed and wonderful. It's wonderful that more female writers are writing stories like this, and there were aspects of this that I loved and felt were well done, but ...more

“Real freedom is freedom from the opinions of others. Above all, freedom from your opinions about yourself. ”
Brennan Manning, The Wisdom of Tenderness: What Happens When God's Fierce Mercy Transforms Our Lives

E.M. Forster
“I believe in aristocracy, though -- if that is the right word, and if a democrat may use it. Not an aristocracy of power, based upon rank and influence, but an aristocracy of the sensitive, the considerate and the plucky. Its members are to be found in all nations and classes, and all through the ages, and there is a secreat understanding between them when they meet. They represent the true human tradition, the one permanent victory of our queer race over cruelty and chaos. Thousands of them perish in obscurity, a few are great names. They are sensitive for others as well as themselves, they are considerate without being fussy, their pluck is not swankiness but power to endure, and they can take a joke.”
E.M. Forster, Two Cheers for Democracy

E.M. Forster
“Human beings have their great chance in the novel.”
E.M. Forster, Aspects of the Novel

E.M. Forster
“She would only point out the salvation that was latent in his own soul, and in the soul of every man. Only connect! That was the whole of her sermon. Only connect the prose and the passion, and both will be exalted, and human love will be seen at its height. Live in fragments no longer. Only connect, and the beast and the monk, robbed of the isolation that is life to either, will die.”
E.M. Forster, Howards End

E.M. Forster
“I cannot help thinking that there is something to admire in everyone, even if you do not approve of them.”
E.M. Forster
