Quote from ‘When God was a Rabbit’

OK so just in case you’re in two minds whether to read When God Was a Rabbit here is a beautiful quote from it where Elly and her brother are out at see and find a buoy with a bell on it…

“‘More than creepy, We shouldn’t be out here,’ I said as I ran my hand across the rough cold metal, and as my brother started the engine, the bell suddenly struck its note and I fell to the floor in tears. I told my brother I had slipped, caught my foot on some rope. But what I never told him was that as the bell chimed, the metal suddenly felt warm; as if it had secretly craved the scanty touch of human contact and the sound it had so suddenly made was actually the sound of its pain.”

Off you go to buy it!
