JANE AUSTEN MODERN AU: Catherine Morland
"Catherine friends decided to invite her for the summer vacation to stay with them in the city. Not even after a week she already met new people, two very interesting siblings, a lovely girl and a irritating (and yet still charming) young man. Their family owned a large estate couple hundred years ago, though now it was all abandoned. But since Catherine was obsessed with gothic romances, castles and ghost stories, she was more than happy to go with them and see the ruins herself."
"My name is Kathy H. I’m 28 years old. I’ve been a carer for nine years. And I’m good at my job. My patients always do better than expected, and are hardly ever classified as agitated, even if they’re about to make a donation. I’m not trying to boast, but I feel a great sense of pride in what we do. Carers and donors have achieved so much. That said, we aren’t machines. In the end it wears you down. I suppose that’s why I now spend most of my time not looking forwards, but looking back, to The Cottages and Hailsham, and what happened to us there. Me. Tommy. And Ruth." - Never Let Me Go (2010)

― Michel de Montaigne
…the clear conviction dawned upon her, shined bright upon her, that he did love her; that he had loved her; that he would love her. And she shrank and shuddered as under the fascination of some great power, repugnant to her whole previous life. She crept away, and hid from his idea. But it was of no use.
