Character’s Quotes

My husband used to tell me I have an overactive imagination. I can’t help it. I mean, haven’t you ever been on a train and wondered about the lives of the people who live near the tracks? The lives you’ve never lived. These are things I want to know.
I need to remember.
Today, I sit in a different car and I can look ahead. Anything is possible, because I am not the girl I used to be.
