Sarah Hina writes fiction and poetry from her home in Athens Ohio, where she lives with her husband and two children. Her debut novel, Plum Blossoms in Paris (Medallion Press), was hailed by Booklist Reviews as "a terrific literary love letter to the City of Light." Her follow-up novel, Sarabande, is now available. For fun, she loves nothing more than photographing the southeastern Ohio landscapes and wildlife which are a daily inspiration to her life and work. You can connect with Sarah on Twitter at http://twitter.com/sarahhina or read more of her work on her blog: http://sarahhina.com.

White Whale

("Moby Dick" by Ilya Nimo)
Angie read to her father, as he sat in the hospital bed she and Sadit had wheeled into the downstairs library, worrying the edge of his sheet with his fingers. His pajama top kept slipping off the knot of his shoulder, while his hair stood up like thistles.     
“Who’s that?” he said, as Ahab quickened the harpoon toward its target.
“Angie. I’m your daughter, Dad,” she... Read more of this blog post »

This is a riveting romance in which you root for the main characters, flaws and all, because Hodges' portrayals are so richly nuanced and grounded in real life that they feel like old friends by the end of the book. Caitlyn and Nick might experience ...more

“When my husband died, because he was so famous and known for not being a believer, many people would come up to me-it still sometimes happens-and ask me if Carl changed at the end and converted to a belief in an afterlife. They also frequently ask me if I think I will see him again. Carl faced his death with unflagging courage and never sought refuge in illusions. The tragedy was that we knew we would never see each other again. I don't ever expect to be reunited with Carl. But, the great thing is that when we were together, for nearly twenty years, we lived with a vivid appreciation of how brief and precious life is. We never trivialized the meaning of death by pretending it was anything other than a final parting. Every single moment that we were alive and we were together was miraculous-not miraculous in the sense of inexplicable or supernatural. We knew we were beneficiaries of chance. . . . That pure chance could be so generous and so kind. . . . That we could find each other, as ...more Ann Druyan

“I was a Flower of the mountain yes when I put the rose in my hair like the Andalusian girls used or shall I wear a red yes and how he kissed me under the Moorish wall and I thought well as well him as another and then I asked him with my eyes to ask again yes and then he asked me would I yes to say yes my mountain flower and first I put my arms around him yes and drew him down to me so he could feel my breasts all perfume yes and his heart was going like mad and yes I said yes I will Yes.”
James Joyce, Ulysses

“When my husband died, because he was so famous and known for not being a believer, many people would come up to me-it still sometimes happens-and ask me if Carl changed at the end and converted to a belief in an afterlife. They also frequently ask me if I think I will see him again. Carl faced his death with unflagging courage and never sought refuge in illusions.

Every single moment that we were alive and we were together was miraculous-not miraculous in the sense of inexplicable or supernatural. We knew we were beneficiaries of chance. . . . That pure chance could be so generous and so kind. . . . That we could find each other, as Carl wrote so beautifully in Cosmos, you know, in the vastness of space and the immensity of time. . . . That we could be together for twenty years. That is something which sustains me and it’s much more meaningful. . . . The way he treated me and the way I treated him, the way we took care of each other and our family, while he lived. That is so much more important than the idea I will see him someday. I don't think I'll ever see Carl again. But I saw him. We saw each other. We found each other in the cosmos, and that was wonderful.”
