“...the long blue shadows of afternoon advanced before me like cheerful ghosts of last summer's growth, dancing past the withered flower borders and the stiff hedges to fall at the feet of a stone nymph, her cascade of water frozen in her urn.”

“I was treated once more to a novelist's valuable lesson, however—in apprehending that one's perception of plot and character are influenced entirely by one's own experience. To hear Mary tell the story of our Christmas at The Vyne, one would have thought that she was hounded by violence from first to last—perceived more than anybody of the nature of the probable murderer—and barely escaped with her life. It was a lesson in writerly humility. We are each the heroines of our own lives.”
Stephanie Barron, Jane and the Twelve Days of Christmas
“The fate of all things cherished and expensive, to be lost at hazard, and well before their time”
Stephanie Barron
“I admire your courage. It is rare to find a woman who places her personal happiness above her fears for the future.”
