“It’s bad luck to bring anything for the baby into the house before it’s born. I thought everyone knew that?”
Donna Douglas, The Nightingale Nurses

“She’s – delightful.’ Jonathan sent him a shrewd look. ‘That doesn’t sound too promising. She doesn’t make your heart skip a beat, then?’ ‘No, and I’m rather relieved about that. I don’t know why you should think cardiac arrhythmia is a good sign,’ said David. ‘Hearts skipping a beat are generally considered dangerous, medically speaking.”

Valencia Cain Hello! I know you have wonderful experience with writing and all, and i would just like you to do a simple favour.
I was hoping you could read the story i began writing when i was only 11.

I will respect everything you say, maybe just a small hint of a review would really make my dream come true.
