I remember talking with you at the station while waiting for the train to Chicago and again on the train. That was a fun trip. The sequel to The Awakening (The Unbelievers) is what I was writing on my laptop at the time and now at last it's done. I hope you enjoy it.

“Sometimes the families people choose work better than those they were born into.”
Lisa M. Lilly, The Awakening

“While girls and women are raised to fear strangers – to worry about being raped, murdered, or assaulted in the street or in parking garages, which are real dangers – statistically, the most dangerous men are those they know and, particularly, those they live with. So Willow Springs started as a community for battered women, with only women.”
Lisa M. Lilly

“I don’t want to become like him. Become one of those people who believe it’s okay to do anything to anyone if it achieves the ‘right’ end.”
Lisa M. Lilly, The Conflagration

“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.”
Helen Keller, The Open Door

“Time is the longest distance between two places.”
Tennessee Williams, The Glass Menagerie

“Cut out all these exclamation points. An exclamation point is like laughing at your own joke.”
