Louise Penny's "Kingdom of the Blind"

Louise Penny's books always leave me with things to think about long after I have finished reading them. 

And always with at least one passage I want to share. 

From "Kingdom of the Blind," there's this: "There were few things more soothing, Jean-Guy thought, than hearing people you love talking softly in another room." 

This took me immediately back to my childhood remembering going to bed before my parents, going to sleep listening to them talking, often about what they were watching on TV. Sometimes laughing at what they were watching. 

Simple, uncomplicated. 


How much do I love Louise Penny's work?  I don't know enough words to tell you.

Note:  I received an advance copy of this novel from the publisher, but with no guarantee of a review by me in return.
