“If you have to choose between terrible grief and terrible guilt, I think grief is easier, in the end.”
Sharon Bolton, Little Black Lies

“I was prepared to be lenient when it was my own safety at stake but if he hurts my dog, I will kill him.”
Sharon Bolton, Little Black Lies

“The people we love fall into two distinct camps, it seems to me. First, those whom we are obliged to care for, connected to us through ties of blood and, occasionally, other people’s marriages. Then there are those few souls who suit us so perfectly that we cannot help but love them. Those whose very presence seems to lift our spirits, soothe our ruffled feathers, tilt the disturbed world so that its axis is true again.”
Sharon Bolton, Little Black Lies
