"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


Shell Game (Kathleen Mallory #5) by Carol O'Connell

Shell Game (Kathleen Mallory Novels) - Carol O. Connell

Mmm what a ride this book offered.

I absolutely loved it in all its entirety.

The plot was fascinating and very much a page turner for me. I think one of the best parts were, that Kathleen had way more face time than the previous books.

I found it a bit sad for Charles to carry the torch of unrequited love for Kathleen. Either something should happen between them or he should grow out of it. At the moment he resembles a kicked dog too much for my liking.

As for the epilogue - very wicked and one of my all time favorites.

I'm looking forward to starting the next book - I hope Kathleen will be in the front again.
