“You're unusual. That's better than popular if you have some courage.”
Debra Dean, The Madonnas of Leningrad

“She is leaving him, not all at once, which would be painful enough, but in a wrenching succession of separations. One moment she is here, and then she is gone again, and each journey takes her a little farther from his reach. He cannot follow her, and he wonders where she goes when she leaves.”
Debra Dean, The Madonnas of Leningrad

“What is heartbreaking is that there is still beauty in the world.”
Debra Dean
