More of Sarah's books…
“every story - love or war - is a story about looking left when we should have been looking right.”
Sarah Blake, The Postmistress

“It is the story that lies around the edges of the photographs, or at the end of newspaper account. It's about the lies we tell others to protect them, and about the lies we tell ourselves in order not to acknowledge what we can't bear: that we are alive, for instance, and eating lunch, while bombs are falling, and refugees are crammed into camps, and the news comes toward us every hour of the day. And what, in the end, do we do?”
Sarah Blake, The Postmistress

“Sand was dribbling out of the bag of her attention, faster and faster.”
Sarah Blake
