A psychological thriller about the lengths one woman will go to fulfill her deepest desire; to be a mother. A fast read that is pretty decent but not quite as acute as The Girl on the Train. The author manages to create a believable narrative that lu ...more

Gordon B. Hinckley
“Cultivate an attitude of happiness. Cultivate a spirit of optimism. Walk with faith, rejoicing in the beauties of nature, in the goodness of those you love, in the testimony which you carry in your heart concerning things divine.”
Gordon B. Hinckley

“Indeed, there is only one reason for us to take up the challenge of relationship, but it is a compelling one -- we must fully relate if we are to fully live.”
Steven Harrison

Rachel Carson
“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature -- the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.”
Rachel Carson, Silent Spring

Diarmuid O'Murchu
“Spirituality is not just about religion, or church attendance, or fidelity to one or other legal requirement. Spirituality is understood to be an innate wisdom of the human heart that enlivens a zest for life, a search for meaning and purpose, a love for all that is good and beautiful, a passion to create a better world, a sensitivity to the life-energy (God, if you wish) that permeates the entire cosmos.”
Diarmuid O'Murchu, Our World in Transition: Making Sense of a Changing World

Haruki Murakami
“And it came to me then. That we were wonderful traveling companions but in the end no more than lonely lumps of metal in their own separate orbits. From far off they look like beautiful shooting stars, but in reality they're nothing more than prisons, where each of us is locked up alone, going nowhere. When the orbits of these two satellites of ours happened to cross paths, we could be together. Maybe even open our hearts to each other. But that was only for the briefest moment. In the next instant we'd be in absolute solitude. Until we burned up and became nothing.”
Haruki Murakami, Sputnik Sweetheart
