Lovely, lyrical, uplifting

The novel is ostensibly a mystery but it’s really a coming of age novel and most of all, an ode to a vanishing way of life. Loneliness and loss define our heroine’s existence through her childhood. She lives alone from the t

“Whether we’re the largest, smallest, most or least significant thing in the universe makes for a marvelous late-night discussion. It’s not relevant to how we live in the here and now. We need to look around, take measure of ourselves, and decide what we can do and how much of it we do to improve our lives and the lives of as many others as we can reach.”
Nikki Stern, Hope In Small Doses

“For every summons to a shining city on the hill or a promise of change we can believe in, we are presented with hundreds of examples of mudslinging and appeals to mob mentality. Rudeness is recast as honesty, greed is presented as ambition, and lines in the sand blur and move.”
Nikki Stern, Hope In Small Doses
