“My very core clenches and spasms, my hips with a mind of their own, lurch. It is as if I no longer have control of any part of my body. ‘Ugh,’ I continue to groan in relief. And then, slowly, the rush is over and I am able to part my eyelids again. David is still looking at my face, a light sheen of sweat on his brow indicates that his task was not without effort. Finding his gaze too forthright in the current
circumstances, my eyes move to the arm that still dwells beneath my skirts and the
hand that clings viciously to his sleeve. My hand.”
Ayana Prende, The Anatomy of Desire

“A woman must find a husband, otherwise she is at the mercy of the world. If she waits for love and it never arrives, what is to become of her? I consented to Edward's proposal because he wanted me, and it was quite possible no other man would.”
Ayana Prende, The Anatomy of Desire

“Resting my head on the high-backed chair, I silently marvel at emotion so strong it
can quite literally chase away all reason and good sense. It is something I have never
experienced. I pity Frances for being victim to such devastating passions. But, if I am
honest, a small part of me envies her, for she possesses something that I should: desire
for my husband. Moreover, she knows what it is to feel alive.”
Ayana Prende, The Anatomy of Desire
