What Alice Knew – T.A. Cotterell
“It wasn’t his answer that bugged me but his voice, which sounded as if there was a kidnapper pointing a gun at his head. I suddenly understood that what I’d taken for evasiveness was helplessness, or hopelessness, the sound of a man falling apart.”
“Alice has a perfect life – a great job, happy kids, a wonderful husband. Until he goes missing one night; she receives a suspicious phone call; things don’t quite add up.
Alice needs to know what’s going on. But when she uncovers the truth she faces a brutal choice. And how can she be sure it is the truth?
Sometimes it’s better not to know.”
Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are. —Benjamin Franklin
“If you want to know what a man’s like, take a look at how he treats his interiors, not his equals.” – Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, J.K. Rowling
“Courage. Kindness. Friendship. Character. These are the qualities that define us as human beings, and propel us, on occasion, to greatness.”
― R.J. Palacio, Wonder
