“Sometimes you gotta face danger to find what you're looking for.”
Sarah Jude, The May Queen Murders

“Mamie told me living rooms were once known as death rooms, back when funerals were a home matter. After mortuaries came into fashion, there was no need for keeping bodies on ice at home, and the death room was rechristened the living room.”
Sarah Jude, The May Queen Murders

“But asking for help means inviting others in, and there's a right good fear of letting in too much. When you let people in, something in you lets out.”
Sarah Jude, The May Queen Murders
