"Those years were essential and cataclysmic, more so than the women had realized at the time. They can't shake the influence, having come of age in the '60's, just as they're coming of age now in their sixties. At the same time, they're entering another new age, promising even more upheaval than the '60s, and they'll have participated in both eras. They're being pulled in both directions simultaneously, one foot in each world."
"Who did I come out of?" Harmony stares at me, her big eyes suddenly mirroring my question, the one I'm pretty sure I'm not supposed to ask. Willow glances at Goji. He shakes his head slightly and whispers to Doobie. Doobie takes my hand. "Let's go for a walk." - CLOVER BLUE: A Novel

"She only knew she couldn't risk shutting off the car, having her girls broil in the heat, like a distracted mother at a shopping mall in the newspaper only a week ago." "They were at peace, protected from the vicious heat with the car running, the cool air circulating." "Dropping to her knees, Claire flattened one hand on the greasy floor like a kickstand. She couldn't pass out."

"I don't want to leave you."
"I'm right behind you."
