Favorite quote(s) from your favorite book(s)
I don’t actually keep track of my favourite quotes, although maybe I should. I am partial to this one fro Thomas H. Cook’s novel Breakheart Hill:
This is the darkest story that I ever heard and all my life I have labored not to tell it.
Breakheart Hill was my first Thomas H. Cook. Those opening lines sparked my interest and the novel certainly delivered on their promise. I have gone on to read several more of Cook’s novels and I really like his writing.
I also really love the opening lines of John Burnham Schwartz’s novel Claire Marvel:
There was before her and now there is after her, and that is the difference in my life.
I didn’t love this book as much as I thought I would, but I did love those lines.
