Two quotes from Louise Penny’s work this week:

  • “Light is every bit as challenging as dark. We can discover a great deal about ourselves by looking at beauty.” – A Trick of the Light

  • “But they both knew that words were weapons too, and when fashioned into a story their power was almost limitless.” – The Nature of the Beast


  • What is your favorite Gamache book?

Until next Thursday, happy reading,
