“Happiness is what you choose, what you follow, not what follows you. These are the things I have seen, these are the things I now know, these are the things I will carry with me as I go.”

“There's no time to hold grudges when you've seen how fragile things can really be.”
Allison Winn Scotch, The Department of Lost & Found

“There is a moment in every relationship when one of the parties senses its imminent demise. There's a moment of incredible clarity when your stomach drops with a heavy sense of dread, and you feel like control is slipping through your fingertips even as you try to hold on. ”

N.T. You've effectively introduced me to Jonathan Tropper. So I'm hooked and spinning through his novels. Thanks!


Jeannie Faulkner Barber Hi Allison and thanks so much for the book recommendation. I'll have to check it out! BTW, how do you send a book recommendation out to your friends? I'm blonde and old....LOL...I can't seem to figure out how to do it. Can you help?
Thanks a bunch,
Jeannie
