“paralyzed by the past, caught in the amber of loss.”
Karen Perry, The Innocent Sleep

“When Dillon's loss had aged us both; there was no doubt about that when I looked at photographs of the two of us in Tangier, we seemed to be kids. We were students when we first met. Bright-eyed and all that. Now, well, yes, there were lines of age on her face, lines of sadness. In the dark blue-gray of her eyes, I saw an extra depth of melancholy, but not despair; instead, there was a depthless sympathy, a forgiving and timeless patience. The difference between us was, whereas I looked ragged and rough around the edges, Robin had aged gracefully.”
Karen Perry, The Innocent Sleep

“Even the most saintly among us can slip.”
Karen Perry, The Boy That Never Was
