Is anyone eagerly awaiting the results of last week’s quote game? You all guessed the same book. And … you were all correct in your answer. Last week’s quote came from The Bronze Bow, by Elizabeth George Speare. That means Melody, Marli Renee, Maiden-in-Waiting, and joy16live4jesus all got it right. Most of you said you “love that book.” What are your favorite parts? Why do you like it? Personally, I enjoy the way the author developed Daniel’s different friendships. And, of course, the ending is wonderful.
Okay, ready for this week’s quote? I’ll preface it with a bit of trivia. Asking me to pick a favorite book is kind of like asking a parent to pick a favorite child, except I have more favorite books than anyone has children! I often give people the title of this book just so I have an answer to the question. Here’s the quote.

Does anyone know what book this quote is from?
