When they arrived in New York City, they became separated and never saw each other again. I would love to know what became of that long-lost brother of my great-great granddad's and what both young men did to try to find each other. Our branch of the family ended up farming in Southeast Kansas. I can't help but wonder what happened to the other branch of the family.(less)

Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
"3.5

This book consumed me. I couldn't stop thinking about the characters and their journey, in the middle of the night, while I was driving, all the time. Even now, I'm in a book fog.

“What does a lighthouse do? I ask myself. It never moves. It cannot hike up its rocky skirt and dash into the ocean to rescue the foundering ship. It cannot calm the waters or clear the shoals. It can only cast light into the darkness. It can only point the way. Yet, through one lighthouse, you guide many ships. Show this old lighthouse the way.”
Lisa Wingate, The Prayer Box

“God goes with me. There's no better escort.”
Laura Frantz, The Lacemaker
