Valentine by Elizabeth Wetmore
"A tough book to read, but worth it. With Valentine, Elizabeth Wetmore has crafted a morally complex story with deeply human characters rooted in west Texas. And having spent my entire life in Texas, the atmosphere of the novel rung true. This one wil" Read more of this review »

“But of all the things Victor learned during the war -- that living to see another day is almost always a matter of stupid luck, that men who know they might die any minute can learn not to give a shit about who's the All-Star and who's the Mexican, or that heroism is most often small and accidental but it still means the world -- the greatest lesson was this: nothing causes more suffering than vengeance. And Victor has no taste for it, not even as the sole witness to his niece's suffering.”

“Every book has at least one good thing…Love stories and bad news and evil masterminds, plots as thick as sludge, places and people she wishes she could know in real life, and words whose loveliness and music make her want to cry when she says them aloud.”
Elizabeth Wetmore, Valentine

“In the church where I grew up, we were taught that sin, even if it happens only in your heart, condemns you all the same. Grace is not assured to any of us, maybe not even most of us, and while being saved gives you a fighting chance, you must always hope that the sin lodged in your heart, like a bullet that cannot be removed without killing you, is not of the mortal kind.”
Elizabeth Wetmore, Valentine
