Thursday Quotables: The Snow Kimono


Welcome to Thursday Quotables! This weekly feature is hosted by Bookshelf Fantasies. Every week we highlight a great quote, line, or passage discovered during your reading each week. This is my first time participating, but I like the idea so much, that I'll make it regular! 


This week's quote is from The Snow Kimono by Mark Henshaw (To be published June 9th, 2015) 


In this novel, two men rediscover their lives through the eyes of one another.


In the beginning, he loved only her laugh. Then found he loved her. This smart, lean-limbed girl, with her green eyes and dark skin. Her tripping laugh as sharp as swallows. He loved her name - Madeleine. Sweet-sounding. Unforgettable. She wasn't Caroline, whose ghost had come back to him. But it didn't matter. Not now. After the pieces had fallen into place.


But the quote that really resumes the theme of the novel is this one:

We can only see our lives through the eyes of another

This was Thursday Quotables for this week.  Have you read this book? What did you think of the quotes?
