I also love By the Pricking of my Thumbs by Agatha Christie...creepy! Regardless, I'm a die-hard Christie fan. It's a wonder I didn't name a daughter Agatha (hubby put the kaibosh on that!). (less)

“Fair is whatever God wants to do.”
Leif Enger, Peace Like a River

“I couldn’t describe the smells of West Virginia, even if I tried. It has something to do with the leaves composting in the woods, the cold trickle of little creeks and waterfalls, the ferns greening up everything. But somewhere deep below, I can smell the rock and the coal this state is built on.”
Heather Day Gilbert, Miranda Warning

“I'm pretty certain most women hate her guts. Luckily, I see past her perfect good looks and into her tangled personality.”
Heather Day Gilbert, Guilt by Association

“At the end of the school day, we walked the long, cold way home feeling happy and hungry. There we found a warm fire, country ham with gravy and hot biscuits, and a mother to hug us! If snow blew under the doors that night, what did it matter? Christmas time was just around the corner.”
Jenny Lee Ellison, Sand Knob through the Eyes of a Child

“If we are to survive, I must start and end my war this same day.”
Heather Day Gilbert, Forest Child
