“-But how? – Olive demanded. Her question reflected off the stone walls, each echo wasking again.

Emma stood up.

I’ll tell you how – she said, and all eyes went to her – We’ll walk – she said it such conviction that I got a chill – We’ll walk and walk until we come to a town.

-What if there’s no town for fifty kilometers? – said Enoch.

-Then we’ll walk for fifty-one kilometers.”

My Teaser:

“The ancient Greeks had words for love the way we have tea selections or café menus. They expected life to include passionate love, playful love, the love you have for a dear friend, love that grows over a long period of time, and even self-love. Passionate love, or Eros, is how we think of love nowadays, but if you never expect to feel romantic love for your body… me neither. Yet all those other kinds of love are totally doable! That’s a lot of love!”
