How can we ever measure the love in others' hearts, or truly understand their intentions, when so often we misconstrue their words and actions due to the faults and weaknesses in our own characters? - Laura Pearl, Finding Grace
Those wise words are the thoughts of Grace, the young sweet protagonist in this book, a girl not unlike St Therese of Lisieux, whose name appears quite a few times in the story.
