“You should own all pieces of your life, good or bad,” Hannah said. “They make up who you are.”
Amy Sue Nathan, The Last Bathing Beauty

“But she had to turn around. For Betty’s sake. For her own. For what was, and wasn’t, and what might have been.”
Amy Sue Nathan, The Last Bathing Beauty

“for years, she looked for her parents everywhere—in crowds on the beach, at High Holiday services, on walks, in her dreams that took her under the sea and up in the sky. She looked for Tillie and Joe in everyone, especially strangers she noticed from the back who were the right height and build, or almost.”
