“She and Jon had been startled and a little frighented by his misery. What happened when you were married, she realized, was that, although you began as two independent people, you eventually grew in certain ways to accommodate your partner's weaknesses and let other parts of you atrophy in deference to his strengths. It was a fine system as long as it endured, but if you extricated yourself from it you couldn't help but be, a least for a time, deformed.”
Christina Schwarz, So Long at the Fair

“That night the rain began to fall so thickly and heavily, it seemed as though the bowl of the ocean had risen into the sky and upended itself.”
Christina Schwarz, The Edge of the Earth

CMT325 I adored "Drowning Ruth." I had written, and then re-written, a fabulous review of the book, which to my chagrin, I lost. The review I have up is nowhere near as close to explaining how much I loved that book! Thanks for introducing me to their lives.

Lynne Griffin I'm a huge fan of Drowning Ruth. And I eagerly await So Long at the Fair. I've just pre-ordered it online. Looking forward to reading your latest.
