Book cover for Spinning Silver
I was nothing out of the ordinary, and hardly a girl to turn a young tsar’s head—if he had been in any danger of turning his head at all, except perhaps all the way round like an owl.
Geraldine Brooks
“You have to know that bigots are unwittingly handing you an edge. By thinking you're lesser than they are, they underestimate you. Lean on that. Learn to use it, and you'll get the upper hand.”
Geraldine Brooks, Horse

Geraldine Brooks
“They were, all of them, lost to a narrative untethered to anything he recognized as true. Their mad conception of Mr. Lincoln as some kind of cloven-hoofed devil’s scion, their complete disregard—denial—of the humanity of the enslaved, their fabulous notions of what evils the Federal government intended for them should their cause fail—all of it was ingrained so deep, beyond the reach of reasonable dialogue or evidence. Scott had become convinced that a total obliteration of their rebellion was the only way forward.”
Geraldine Brooks, Horse

Patti Callahan Henry
“In a crack of my soul, during the untethered fear while calling for help, the sneaky Lion saw his chance, and God came in; he entered the fissures of my heart as if he’d been waiting a long time to find an opening. Warmth fell over me; a river of peace passed through me. For the first time in all my life, I felt fully known and loved. There was a solid sense that he was with me, had always been with me.”
Patti Callahan, Becoming Mrs. Lewis

“Storm grabbed my hand. "Were you brave, Rain? Were you a good soldier?"

"I was brave," I said.

"Braver than me?"

I squeezed his hand, thankful for its warmth and strength in mine. Thankful that he was there, safe and whole. "I thought of you every day, Storm," I said. "You made me brave."

His smile lit the room. "That's what twins are for.”
Jillian Boehme, Stormrise

Patti Callahan Henry
“Whenever you'd like to talk about it, you know our friendship is big enough for even the sorrow.”
Patti Callahan, Becoming Mrs. Lewis
