The Grand Sophy by Georgette Heyer
Rate this book
Clear rating
In terms of verve and sheer execution, this book was fabulous. Rarely have I laughed or caught my breath so often at the humor and daring of a Regency romance. Despite the time at which Heyer wrote this, Sophy must be one of my favorite and most mode ...more

Velvet Is the Night by Elizabeth Thornton
Rate this book
Clear rating
I can't fault the basic execution of this story, but partway through, I almost quit reading it. After the high-stakes premise of the first third, Thornton seemed to find a lot of too-convenient resolutions to the major problems created for the charac ...more

A trip through Egypt set me to craving this series as a reread. I've had to wait to get library ebooks for some installments, but so far it's only improved upon my memory. The introduction of Ramses, in particular, if sometimes a bit preposterous, st ...more

Technically I've only finished one Peters novel so far (although I'm half-way through hearing He Shall Thunder in the Sky), but I already suspect I'll be buying the whole Peabody series for future rereading. The characters made this first book such a ...more

“The problem with many Jesus freaks is that we claim to 'build our house on a rock,' but when a storm comes we have such confidence in the building that all our focus is on the house. As if surety comes from construction, not from the foundation.”
Anna Broadway, Sexless in the City: A Memoir of Reluctant Chastity

“What to one person is common courtesy is to another tender words of life - and by the same token, what one person intends to show as great affection may be to his beloved an irrelevant show of frivolousness compared to the kindness of simply doing the laundry sometimes.”
Anna Broadway, Sexless in the City: A Memoir of Reluctant Chastity

“The strange thing about adulthood, when you're single, is that it's possible to go for fairly extended periods without facing blatant sin against. Sure there was plenty of sin against God but with such infrequent consequence - it was easy to self-congratulate on how much our relationship owed to my 'righteousness,' generosity, and enlightened theological views. Though for the past twenty months or so I'd been hearing a pastor who's constant theme was grace, it didn't hit home until I faced this proof of what the Bible says God considers depravity.”
Anna Broadway, Sexless in the City: A Memoir of Reluctant Chastity

“Look at them leaving in droves despite knowing they will be welcomed with restraint in those strange lands because they do not belong, knowing they will have to sit on one buttock because they must not sit comfortable lest they be asked to rise and leave, knowing they will speak in dampened whispers because they must not let their voices drown those of the owners of the land, knowing they will have to walk on their toes because they must not leave footprints on the new earth lest they be mistaken for those who want to claim the land as theirs. Look at them leaving in droves, arm in arm with loss and lost, look at them leaving in droves.”
