The need to call this thing “good” and this thing “bad,” this thing “white” and this thing “black,” was an impulse that Effia did not understand. In her village, everything was everything. Everything bore the weight of everything else.

“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened.”

“I'd breathe for her. I'd see for her, hear for her, and feel for her. I'd even die for her. Thousands of times. If I could see her smile at me one more time, it would all be worth it. Just one more time. Before I completely fell apart.”
Tiana Dalichov, Purification

“Fear is a natural emotion in life, but you cannot let it dictate your actions. When you act out of fear, you will only meet failure. But act out of determination to conquer that fear, and you will succeed at anything. Maybe not the first time, or the second or third, but eventually—as long as you keep trying—you can conquer your fears and succeed.”

Hi Ann! :) Oh, yes, we enjoyed The Perfect Guy so much! And I got the review done and posted! :) Like I said in it - it's a great summer read! :) That's cool about the setting in Connecticut - we feel like we got to visit there. Thanks again! :)
I totally got the "Ann with an 'e'" reference from Anne of Green Gables :D

Ann♥♪♪♪♪ Hi Ann! :) Thanks so much for the friend request! I saw it waiting for me and I was like "Ann Herrick - the author of The Perfect Guy?!?!?!" :D A sib of mine and I read The Perfect Guy last year and loved it - thanks for writing it! :) I'm hoping to post a review soon - I'm behind in reviewing, adding books, and posting on here!!! Thanks again and hope you're having a great summer! :)

Ann Herrick Nice to meet you too, Holly.

Many of my books are similar (though in an updated way), while some of them are more serious (though still having a romance at least as a subplot). I plan on updating Practice Makes Perfect (my first book, and a YA Keepsake) with a new title to be released some time next year. Love all the opportunities for second chances for out-of-print books.
