~Rainer Maria Rilke

“I love the world of words, where life and literature connect.”
~Denise J Hughes

“Reading good books ruins you for enjoying bad ones.”
~Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

  1. Read the first two Dray and Kamoie books– really enjoyed both of them– and the notes about the parts of the book that were actual and how it was researched. Sent me to Wikipedia and learn more… Happy Reading Carol! xo
