Picking a favorite quote from a great novel is like choosing a favorite dessert — there are so many to pick from, so many delicious choices, that selecting just one is nearly impossible. However, the following quote (no spoilers, I promise!) sums up a reoccurring theme from the wonderful novel A Beauty So Rare by Tamera Alexander.
“[Eleanor] paused briefly to finger one of the flowers, and her focus slipped down the stem to the scar marking the place where Marcus had originally grafted the two flowers together. She knew that, with time, and as the plant grew stronger, the slight imperfection would become less noticeable. All of the grafted plants bore scars–evidence of the cutting, and also of the healing around it. But what beauty had come from both.”
