Quick Review ~ Leaving Paradise by Simon Elkeles
"When I look back down at my hand covering hers, I'm grateful she hasn't come to her senses and pulled away.
As if she knows my thoughts, we both turn our hands at the same time so our hands are palm against palm...finger against finger. Her hand is dwarfed against mine. It makes her seem more delicate and petite than I'd realize.
I feel a need to protect her and be her champion should she ever need one.
With a slight shift of my hand, I lace my fingers through hers.
I'm holding hands.
With Maggie Armstrong."
