Flush by Virginia Woolf
"In 2018, I found Virginia Woolf's Flush and added it to my to read list but somewhere I thought I read, that Elizabeth Barrett Browning's Flush had died around 14 years old, being superstitious enough, I wanted to not read it for a couple years. I..." Read more of this review »

The Silence of the Girls by Pat Barker
"The story of the last year of the Trojan War, told primarily from the point of view of Briseis. Pat Barker writes beautifully, and she explores the price women pay in war, a price often overlooked in the emphasis on warriors’ sacrifices."
Wunderland by Jennifer Cody Epstein
"There aren’t any horrific scenes of the death camps here, yet it is a story that is very much a story of the holocaust, a chilling depiction of Nazi Germany before WWII, evoking in me anger, fear, sadness. This was an emotional read about friendsh..." Read more of this review »

Ken Robinson
“Copernicus, Galileo, and Kepler did not solve an old problem, they asked a new question, and in doing so they changed the whole basis on which the old questions had been framed.”
Ken Robinson

Bobby Underwood
“The Coroner's Office didn't look any different from the rest of Cozumel. It was colorful in that Spanish flavor; an orange-brown background trimmed in soft yellow only slightly brighter than pastel. Palm trees kissed each corner. It was set back from the thoroughfare some distance and well-manicured shrubbery lined the long brick walkway leading to the entrance. Massive Ceiba trees -- ironically, the Mayan tree of life -- shielded curious tourists from reality. The sight of dead people was not compatible to festivity, nor would it encourage vacationing gringos to spend often and unwisely.”
Bobby Underwood, The Turquoise Shroud

Bobby Underwood
“When Candida blew, she’d really blew, so the falling debris had mostly been too small to do any real damage to the rest of the boats in the marina. Other than a few minor cuts and bruises suffered by those folks stupid enough to look up at the sky and wait for it to rain wood and fiberglass and aluminum down on them rather than run for cover, no one had been hurt; no one ever said being able to afford a boat and marina fees made a person smart.”
Bobby Underwood, The Long Gray Goodbye

“Obviously that wasn’t how she thought of herself. She sought to do neither harm nor good. She was detached, intellectual and artistic. She read American books which had been banned in England and English books which had been banned in America.”
Elizabeth Eliot, Alice

Bobby Underwood
“For it is by God's design that the heart clings to the small but wonderful moments in life, or else the abundance of darkness in the world would become paramount, and eclipse the good.”
Bobby Underwood, The Gentle Tide
