“But I was going to learn the hardest lesson in life: that those who
are closest to you, always betray you first.”
Susan Speranza, Tale of Lucia Grandi
“And so began the years of my internment, where I was locked away from all human things, imprisoned in my solitude like Rapunzel imprisoned in the tower. I knew instinctively that I was still very much alive within the tomb, that what was good and kind and loving and generous in me still existed in the very depths of my being, buried beneath layers of fire and ice. But I also knew that I was incapable of rising from the tomb myself, of bursting forth on my own through the thick layers that surrounded me. It was as if a spell had been cast; the only thing that could break it now was a human word, a human touch.
Which never came.”
Susan Speranza, Tale of Lucia Grandi
“But it was too late. I had seen, and seeing then became the habit of my life. Never again was I able to avert my eyes or leave the veil that covers so many truths untouched.”
Susan Speranza, Tale of Lucia Grandi
