Quotes by Ellen Crosby  (?)

“We all have a right to our private lives; it's living a secret life that gets us in trouble.”
Ellen Crosby

“We are all masters of our own destiny, my mother used to tell me. Even though we can’t always choose what happens to us, we can choose how we respond. In the end, she said, the way we handle the tough things life throws at us—adversity, loss, hardship, rejection—is what defines each of us as a human being. Whether we face them with courage and grace and honesty or choose to feel sorry for ourselves, blame someone else, lash out at life’s injustices with anger and cruelty—that’s what makes us who we are.”
Ellen Crosby, The Vineyard Victims

“Plato—“No thing more excellent nor more valuable than wine was ever granted mankind by God.”
Ellen Crosby, The Merlot Murders

To make things a little more interesting we have decided to change the format for our BOTM recommendations.

We have decided to try a poll to select a specific Genre. Within each genre will be 3 selected books recommendations. You can read 1 or all 3 and there will be book discussions available for each of these books.
