Eyam Museum proved an invaluable resource during my research for THE SMALLEST THING. I was so honored to be asked to join them for a virtual event this year.

Quotes by Lisa Manterfield  (?)

“As skeptical as I was about the reincarnation hypothesis, part of me wanted it to be true. If the people we loved came back to us, then all the tragedy in life might somehow be a little easier to accept.”
Lisa Manterfield, A Strange Companion

“‎You can clutch the past so tightly to your chest that it leaves your arms too full to embrace the present.”
Jan Glidewell
