Marilyn Harris, This Other Eden

“Suddenly he dug his heels into the horse's side with such strength that the animal reared back, neighing his pain. It was a sound which might have come from his own throat as with eyes unfocused he stole a final look at her, so distant.”
Marilyn Harris, This Other Eden

“The mere thought of that one name was nameless medicine, causing her thoughts to cease as she channeled a mesmerizing hate outward, a hate so exalting, so ennobling, that she found she was again capable of lifting her head, a reviving hate that warmed her as surely as though she were sitting before a fire, a hate-filled harbor, a safe hate, a hate beyond mortification and disgust, a redeeming healing consciousness of hate, canceling all new spheres of liability to pain, converting her within the instant into a statue, sitting upright, a divine hate, feeding her, a hate without qualification or appointment, without authority or opposition, an intentional hate, like a true religion without complexity or resolution, a hate that was pure joy.”
Marilyn Harris, This Other Eden
