Well Said: Loss & Joy

So far The Lace Makers of Glenmara has completely enchanted me. So much so, that I am sharing several teasers from the book.
"The Irish tunes called up something in her. She felt them in her veins; a deep place moved her to tears. It wasn't sadness, not entirely. It was more complicated than that; everything at once - joy, pain, hope."

"You're too young to give in to disappointment. The joy will come again, and when it does it will be all the better because of what you've suffered."

"Kate shifted through the past, what might or might not have been, seeking a reference point, a place to say: This is the beginning. A spot on the map: You are here. Or where here. Or might be here. You belong."

  17. Lovely teaser!! I'm a bit lace obsessed after I took a writing class at monastery where the groundskeeper -- a nun -- made lace for the chapel. I forget what she told me, but it took her something like 20 hours to do a few inches? It was, needless to say, a serious labor of love.

    My teaser -- not nearly as poignant as yours!
