Never have I experienced hearing and feeling music by reading words on a page. And what a beautiful story! I'm a new fan of this author. "
Escapement by Kristen Wolf
"Never have I been compelled to mark up the pages of a book. I would worry though that once I started to highlight the pages they would end up entirely covered. I loved this book so very much.

Kristen Wolf uses a mechanical musical analogy to open the world of Late Romantic music and manners to readers who may or may not have a great familiarity with classical music. The impact of artists’ and lovers’ lives, she asserts, depend heavily..." Read more of this review »

“Do not demand perfection of yourself. Only mindfulness. When the way seems unclear, or difficult, you must remember. And sometimes you must remember to remember.”
Kristen Wolf, The Way

“whether it is the innocent or the guilty you kill, the act of destruction degrades the soul. And buries all hope.”
Kristen Wolf, The Way

“Do not confuse destruction with power. They are opposites. Think of this: How long does it take to crush a butterfly with a stick?” He looked about. When no one spoke he continued. “I can tell you from experience: It takes no time at all. And yet what is required to create a butterfly? Nothing short of a magical transformation—a divine shifting of blood and sinew—a miraculous act that not one of us could ever dream of achieving! When you remember it this way, you can see that the act of swatting down a butterfly is a minor and inferior act—and one of great cowardice!—in comparison to honoring and sustaining it. So it is with all life.”
Kristen Wolf, The Way

“The moment we begin to fear the opinions of others and hesitate to tell the truth that is in us, and from motives of policy are silent when we should speak, the divine floods of light and life no longer flow into our souls.”
Elizabeth Cady Stanton

“There is no religion without love,
and people may talk as much as
they like about their religion, but
if it does not teach them to be good
and kind to man and beast,
it is all a sham.”
