The end of this book was completely perfect. But I have to admit, I didn't really start getting into this one until about halfway through.

This book felt grittier than some of Elizabeth Strout's others. Almost gratuitously. Like, not just

Olive, Again by Elizabeth Strout
Her house, the house she and Henry had built so many years ago, the house that looked small now and would be razed to the ground by whoever bought it, the property was what mattered. But she saw behind her closed eyes the house, and inside her was a shiver that went through her bones. The house where she had raised her son—never, ever realizing that she herself had been raising a motherless child, now a long, long way from home.

Oswald Chambers
“Patience is more than endurance. A saint's life is in the hands of God like a bow and arrow in the hands of an archer. God is aiming at something the saint cannot see, and He stretches and strains, and every now and again the saint says--'I cannot stand anymore.' God does not heed, He goes on stretching till His purpose is in sight, then He lets fly. Trust yourself in God's hands. Maintain your relationship to Jesus Christ by the patience of faith. 'Though He slay me, yet will I trust in Him.”
Oswald Chambers

E.M. Forster
“I suggest that the only books that influence us are those for which we are ready, and which have gone a little further down our particular path than we have yet gone ourselves.”
E.M. Forster

Theodore Roosevelt
“To educate a person in the mind but not in morals is to educate a menace to society.”
Theodore Roosevelt

L.M. Montgomery
“Don't be led away by those howls about realism. Remember-pine woods are just as real as pigsties and a darn sight pleasanter to be in.”
Lucy Maud Montgomery, Emily of New Moon

Christopher  Morley
“When you sell a man a book you don't sell just twelve ounces of paper and ink and glue - you sell him a whole new life. Love and friendship and humour and ships at sea by night - there's all heaven and earth in a book, a real book.”
Christopher Morley
