My book beginnings is taken from EMMA IN THE NIGHT by Wendy Walker:
 

"We believe what we want to believe.  We believe what we need to believe.  Maybe there's no difference between wanting and needing.  I don't know.  What I do know is that the truth can evade us, hiding behind our blind spots, our preconceptions, our hungry hearts that long for quiet."
