“Let your heart lead you, do not be afraid, for there will be much to regret if reason and sense and fear are your only markers”
Tara Conklin, The House Girl

“Over the years she had learned to fold down rising emotion just as she would fold the clean bedsheets, the sheet growing smaller and tighter with each pass until all that remained of that wide wrinkled expanse of cotton was a hard closed-in square.”
Tara Conklin, The House Girl

“Just to sit for a moment, herself, no one claiming her time or her thoughts or the product of her mind and hands. What other word to call that if not freedom?”
Tara Conklin, The House Girl
