I like this these lines right at the beginning:

“You try your best to love the world despite obvious flaws in design and execution. And you take care of whatever needy things present themselves to you during your passage through it. Otherwise you’re worthless.”

    Just yesterday I was trying to decide what to read next. You may have just answered the question. I will go look for it later today!

    Great line — thanks for the post. I really enjoyed _Cold Mountain_, and I was one of those naysayers who said it couldn’t be all that good. But it was.

    I love Charles Frazier. He is one of my favorite authors and lines like that is what makes him a favorite.
