1. "She’d wanted love, a husband and children, a home filled with laughter and security, the things she’d never had as a child. She’d stopped even dreaming about them, she realized, and that was the saddest thing of all. But then she’d never really had a chance; she’d fallen in love with the one man she couldn't have, and it appeared that she was one of those women who loved on once in their lifetime"
- Linda Howard, Sarah's Child
