Guess a Quote (9.24.12)

Welcome to this week’s quote game.

Last week’s quote was taken from the opening page of Gunner’s Run by Rick Barry.

And here’s the quote for this week.

The young man looked down from the cart at the people in front of him. Jonah felt his teacher’s eyes meet his own, and for a fraction of a second a smile played on the prisoner’s lips. Then he glanced toward heaven and spoke. “I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country.”

It should be easy to guess who this story is about, but what book is the quote from? If you’re stumped, you can look the archives of this blog to find the right answer.

Don’t forget to comment on the post where I reviewed Stalked for a chance to win a free copy of the book!

    Seeing the author of last week’s quote made me smile; I’m good friends with a Rick Barry… but he’s a missionary/basketball coach in the Phillipines, and to my knowledge never wrote any fiction 😉 (he and his wife just had a baby boy – so cute!)

    Anyway, I’m quite positive the quote can be discovered in the novel by Anna Myers, “Spy!”
    Fantastic title by the way, and the cover art is quite eye catching – I love the expression the artist put into his eyes: a mixture of determination, tenacity and quiet passion.
    (Ok, that sounds really poetical, but look at the cover and you’ll see what I mean 🙂 )

    If anyone, Leah included, wants another challenge, here’s a quote from something NOT on the blog (cue the drumroll please…)

    “Mr. Bumble had a great idea of his oratorical powers and his importance. He’d displayed one, and vindicated the other. He relaxed.”

    Any guesses?

    No one else guessed! 😦
    Yes, Oliver Twist is right; I suppose it wasn’t too hard since I used Mr. Bumble’s name…
    Oh well, I’ll stump you sometime!
