Books like Echo’s Sister are the reason authors are told to “write what you know.” Paul Mosier breaks your heart a dozen times over, then patches it back up so that it’s somehow larger than when you started.

“I'll pretend, I tell myself. Pretending is safer than believing.”
Sarah Miller, The Lost Crown

“I wish I wasn't an imperial highness or an ex-grand duchess. I'm sick of people doing things to me because of what I am. Girl-in-white-dress. Short-one-with-fringe. Daughter-of-the-tsar. Child-of-the-ex-tyrant. I want people to look and see me, Anastasia Nikolaevna Romanova, not the caboose on a train of grand duchesses. Someday, I promise myself, no one will be able to hear my name or look at my picture and suppose they know all about me. Someday I will do something bigger than what I am.”
Sarah Miller, The Lost Crown

“I cross myself and close my eyes. Where we go next, we go together.”
Sarah Miller, The Lost Crown
