A Novel Thought or Two

I’m reading The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessy by Rachel Joyce, her marvelous sequel to the equally fabulous novel, The Unlikely Pilgramage of Harold Fry, and I had to share these two quotes:

“If only memory were a library with everything stored where it should be.”

p. 255
“I gather Finty has a thousand followers,” said a soft voice beside me. … “What do you do with a thousand followers?” [Mr. Henderson] settled into the chair beside mine. “I had a wife and a best friend. That was all I needed.”
