Quotes by Caroline Lea  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“The body remembers love, as rock remembers the heat and compression that formed it. It waits, buried under the earth, cold and longing, until it is freed. Then that same rock can skim across a river, travel an ocean, be carried across strange lands until it finds its way home.”
Caroline Lea, The Glass Woman

“A chill wind blew across the frozen water. There was no marker to show where the land ended and the sea began, except for the blocks of solid sea, where the water had frosted over, shifted, then frozen
again. Tiny slabs of ice squatted, stacked like tombstones.
We walked out onto the crusted water. The ice groaned under our feet, the rumble of an Arctic bear, warning as the dark water beneath shifted. We stopped. My heart beat in my throat. I waited for the crack of the ice, the roar of the water.
The world held its breath.”
Caroline Lea, The Glass Woman

“The truth is water, or steam; the truth is ice. The same tale might shift and melt and reshape at any time.”
Caroline Lea, The Glass Woman
