I decided to read Eleanor Oliphant as a change from psychological thrillers. To my surprise, Eleanor Oliphant turned out to be as psychological as many thrillers out there.

Eleanor is quirky, forthright, and lonely. She's also funny, and open to chang

“Monsters are men and women just like us, and they have the ability to hide their true face.”
Sarah A. Denzil, Silent Child

“I’ve heard it said that you can only control yourself and how you behave in any given setting. You can never control the circumstances around you. You can’t control how other people react, only how you, yourself, act. That’s the great tragedy of life. One moment everything is perfect and the next it’s all in tatters because of the circumstances happening all around you. And what are you supposed to think when your child is taken from you? That it was fate? God? Bad luck? How are you supposed to move on? When”
Sarah A. Denzil, Silent Child

“Scorned. As if the jealousy of a lover could ever compete with the ferocity of a mother.”
Sarah A. Denzil, Silent Child
