“I asked for your heart and you gave me a stone.”
Rachel Hore, The Glass Painter's Daughter

“You're my lodestar – that's the one that sailors followed, the Pole Star that took them safely home to harbour.” he said.
“And I suppose you're like a shooting star” she responded “Always travelling in unexpected directions”
And like a shooting star, he had disappeared over the edge of her world, taking all the light and leaving her in cold darkness.”
Rachel Hore, A Place of Secrets

“Mark had gone, passed into the care of the Keeper of the Stars, but the stars were still there.”
