"This is an evil in all that happens under the sun, that the same fate comes to everyone. Moreover, the hearts of all are full of evil; madness is in their hearts while they live, and after that they go to the dead. But whoever is joined with all the living has hope, for a living dog is better than a dead lion." - Ecclesiastes 9:3
Growing up in Ohio, I was often told that the best thing to ever come out of Kentucky was I-75. Well things have changed. The best thing to come out of Kentucky these days is the young author C.E. Morgan. I read All the Living in 2009 when it first hit the library shelf and haven't been able to get the story or it's protagonist Aloma out of my head. I grabbed it again the other day as it is one of those rare books I will actually read more than once.
