“People are all the same, really. The one thing you can rely on is that they will behave exactly as you feared they might.”
Lucy Atkins, The Night Visitor

“It is, I’ve realized, entirely possible to hold two realities in one’s mind simultaneously, and to believe them both at a visceral level.”
Lucy Atkins, The Night Visitor

“I felt my stomach lurch as if the bus had gone over a precipice.”
Lucy Atkins, Magpie Lane
