“Where you go, I shall go; where you die, I shall die, and there will I be buried.”
Rosamund Hodge, Cruel Beauty

“They said that love was terrifying and tender, wild and sweet, and none of it made any sense.
But now I knew that every mad word was true.”
Rosamund Hodge, Cruel Beauty

“You deserve all that and more. It made me happy to see you suffer. I would do it all over again if I could.' I realized I was shaking as the words tumbled out of me. 'I would do it again and again.

Rosamund Hodge, Cruel Beauty
