Welcome back to Thursday Quotables! This weekly feature is the place to highlight a great quote, line, or passage discovered during your reading each week.  Whether it’s something funny, startling, gut-wrenching, or just really beautifully written, Thursday Quotables is where my favorite lines of the week will be, and you’re invited to join in!

What Nora Knew

What Nora Knew by Linda Yellin
Gallery Books, 2014

Pammie had all the prerequisites for marrying money. Long-legged. Voluptuous. Blond and tan. Her tans used to come from Jergens tanning moisturizer; now they come from winters in Palm Springs. If you asked her, she’d say she wasn’t looking to fall in love with a man twenty years her senior with a big fat bank account, that’s just the way things turned out. I’d say parading down the Hamptons beaches in a skinny bikini past the big mansions, the summer after college graduation, didn’t hurt either.
