Olivia Manning

  • ... a wind came up and ran along the rock base lifting the sand like the edge of a carpet.

  • The trouble was, she could not see the justice of her state. She was not old: she was a girl hidden behind a mask. Now that she had realized she was no longer young, she did not know how she should behave. She had become a stranger in her own life.

Olivia Manning, English writer

(1915 - 1980)
