“she could make women feel stronger and bolder and more courageous, as they would need to be through these dark times.”
Natasha Lester, The Paris Seamstress

“She ran straight into Leo’s open arms, unable to stop the tears from falling, feeling at last defended, like a single musical note that had finally found the symphony to which it belonged.”
