The word of the Gospel–after all those centuries of trying to lift yourself into heaven by worrying about the perfection of your bootstraps–suddenly turned out to be a flat announcement that the saved were home before they started…Grace has to be drunk straight: no water, no ice, and certainly no ginger ale; neither goodness, nor badness, not the flowers that bloom in the spring of super spirituality could be allowed to enter into the case."

"What would you call it, Molly?""I've been thinking about it, and it seems to me we wouldn't be here if it weren't for Cinder.""Oh . . .," Marron said.
