I saw that Julie over at One More Book came up with a new post called Loving the Lines.
Basically, Loving the Lines is dedicated to books with stand-out quotes that need to be shared. I’m often moved by passages and lines from the books I read, and I thought this would be a great way to show the love!! Many thanks to all the wonderful writers who inspire, empower, entertain, and make people think.
As soon as I saw this post I knew I needed to make this a weekly post! Instead of focusing on just one author, I’ve decided to focus on one book that has some really powerful and memorable quotes.
In the few minutes we’ve been talking, huge fluffy flakes have dusted everything like powdered sugar and the sky reflects the pinky-purple of Chicago’s lights, over forty miles away, bouncing across the low clouds and the now white ground.
Not books you put on display, but books you keep on your bedside table. Books you read. Books you love.
‘Because until you know the truth, you shouldn’t judge people.’
Anger keeps embarrassment, humiliation, shame, all manner of painful emotions at bay – for a time.
Isn’t that what Maddie always said – good, fully dimensional charaters let us live their lives vicariously, and bad ones tell us about the authors?
About the Book:
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Published: May 14, 2019
One of Madeline Cullen’s happiest childhood memories is of working with her Aunt Maddie in the quaint and cozy Printed Letter Bookshop. But by the time Madeline inherits the shop nearly twenty years later, family troubles and her own bitter losses have hardened Madeline’s heart toward her once-treasured aunt—and the now struggling bookshop left in her care.
While Madeline intends to sell the shop as quickly as possible, the Printed Letter’s two employees have other ideas. Reeling from a recent divorce, Janet finds sanctuary within the books and within the decadent window displays she creates. Claire, though quieter than the acerbic Janet, feels equally drawn to the daily rhythms of the shop and its loyal clientele, finding a renewed purpose within its walls. When Madeline’s professional life takes an unexpected turn, and when a handsome gardener upends all her preconceived notions, she questions her plans and her heart. She begins to envision a new path for herself and for her aunt’s beloved shop—provided the women’s best combined efforts are not too little, too late.
