My slice of heaven

2021 BOOKS

"It has been said, 'time heals all wounds.' I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone. " -- Rose Kennedy

“We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light. ”  -- Plato

“The life of the dead is set in the memory of the living. ”  -- Marcus Tullius Cicero

“There is a sacredness in tears. They are not a mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition and of unspeakable love. ”  -- Washington Irving

“We all wear masks and the time comes when we cannot remove them without removing our own skin.”  -- André Berthiaume

“I am an invisible man. No I am not a spook like those who haunted Edgar Allen Poe: Nor am I one of your Hollywood movie ectoplasms. I am a man of substance, of flesh and bone, fiber and liquids - and I might even be said to possess a mind. I am invisible, simply because people refuse to see me.”  -- Ralph Ellison

“Without knowledge, life is no more than the shadow of death.”  -- Molière

“Everyone calls himself a friend, but only a fool relies on it: nothing is commoner than the name, nothing rarer than the thing.”  -- Jean de La Fontaine

“Beware, so long as you live, of judging men by their outward appearance.”  -- Jean de La Fontaine


Stone Angel (Kathleen Mallory #4) by Carol O'Connell

Stone Angel - Carol O'Connell

It has been +1 year since my last visit to this series, so it was with some trepidation that I picked this book for my read. I don't remember there being so many POV switches - but that may very well be why I took a break from the series.

Kathleen is exactly as I remembered her. Tough, strong and very capable, although I wish that the spotlight would be more on her. And then there's Charles. He was kind and gentle in the other books and the same in this, but if he doesn't start to grow some balls soon I'll go nuts. 

It was very nice to visit Mallory's hometown and see what happened that day it all went awry. Now I just want to know more about what happened after, but before Markowitz.
