"In a few breaths' time will speak some sad words to you. But you must hear them the same way we have agreed to see scars now. Sad words are just another beauty. A sad story means, this storyteller is alive. The next thing you know, something fine will happen to her, something marvelous, and then she will turn around and smile."
I have just finished reading "Little Bee" and I am speechless all I can say, like a little kid who just witnessed something beautiful, is "wow." I seem to have underline about every other page with beautiful quotes. You can surely guarantee I will be looking for other books by Chris Cleave.
And you may ask, "How did I come upon this little treasure?" Well read it here
