“- 'I bet you are not afraid of anything', I said.
'Of course I am,' she said, and she pulled at a loose thread in her apron. 'I am afraid of lies.'-”
Stacey Halls, The Familiars

“Loyalty is earned, not demanded.”
Stacey Halls, The Familiars

“Alice Gray saved my life, not just once but many times. When I itched, she brought me plants to rub on my skin. When I was sick, she made me tinctures. She kept me company when I was at my lowest. She planted a garden for my health.'
'Sounds like a witch to me, Richard said bitterly. 'How else would she know those things?'
'She is a midwife, like her mother before her. Are you like the king now, thinking all wise women and poor women and midwives are carrying out the Devil's work? Why, he must be the largest employer in Lancashire.”
Stacey Halls, The Familiars
