Shana Youngdahl, As Many Nows as I Can Get

Jane Harvey-Berrick
“Ten years ago he’d said these words to me, told me that he loved me. I’d believed they were the words of a lonely, infatuated boy: real, but not lasting. Now the same man was standing before me, saying that he’d loved me all this time – and that it was real. He didn’t care that I was older than him; he didn’t care that I was ridden with insecurities; and he’d forgiven me for doubting him.”
Jane Harvey-Berrick, The Education of Caroline

Kate Morton
“Dolly was a survivor; Vivien said so, and Vivien ought to know- just look at the way she'd recovered from her own early hardships to create a new life for herself. And if Vivien could do it, so would Dolly. She'd suffered so much, but she still had things to live for- she'd find things to live for. This was the time to be brave, to be better than she'd ever been before. Dolly had done things that made her ashamed to remember them; her grand ideas had been nothing but a young girl's silly dreams, they'd all turned to ash in her fingers; but everybody deserved a second chance, everybody was worthy of forgiveness, even her- Vivien said so.”
Kate Morton, The Secret Keeper

Kate Morton
“At her ninetieth birthday party, as her three great-granddaughters wove necklaces from daisies, and her grandson tied a hanky around his own son's bleeding knee, and her daughters made sure everyone had cake and tea enough, and someone shouted, "Speech! Speech!," Dorothy Nicolson had smiled beatifically. The late-flowering roses blushed on the bushes behind her, and she clasped her hands together, idly rolling the rings that fell now loosely around her knuckles. And then she sighed. "I'm so fortunate," she said, in a slow, rickety voice. "Look at all of you, look at my children. I'm so thankful, so lucky to have..." Her old lips had trembled then, and her eyelids fluttered shut, and the others had rushed around her with kisses and cries of "Dearest, darling Mummy!" so they'd missed it when she said, "... a second chance."
But Laurel had heard it. And she'd stared harder at Ma's lovely, tired, familiar secretive face. Scouring it for answers. Answers she knew were there to be found. Because people who'd led dull and blameless lives did not give thanks for second chances.”
Kate Morton, The Secret Keeper

“You don’t get a second chance to get it right the first time”
Howard Dwayne Livingston

Delia Owens
“Most men go from one female to the next. The unworthy ones strut about, pulling you in with falsehoods. Which is probably why Ma fell for a man like Pa. Tate wasn't the only guy who left me. Chase Andrews even talked to me about marriage, but he married someone else. Didn't even tell me; I read it in the paper."
"I'm so sorry. I am, but, Kya, it's not just guys who are unfaithful. I've been duped, dropped, run over a few times myself. Let's face it, a lot of times love doesn't work out. Yet even when it fails, it connects you to others and, in the end, that is all you have, the connections. Look at us; you and I have each other now, and just think, if I have kids and you have kids, well, that's a whole new string of connections. And on it goes. Kya, if you love Tate, take a chance."
Kya thought of Ma's painting of Tate and herself as children, their heads close together, surrounded by pastel flowers and butterflies. Maybe a message from Ma after all.”
Delia Owens, Where the Crawdads Sing

Lydia Michaels
“Grief was the counterpoint of love. The more a person loves something, the more painful sorrow became when that something disappeared. She loved Nash with every ounce of her being, so when he went away he took her entire soul with him." ~Lydia Michaels WAKE MY HEART (Jasper Falls 1)”
Lydia Michaels, Wake My Heart

Laura Chouette
“Sometimes temporary
feels like a blessing in a world
where love only lasts a second.”
Laura Chouette
