A Broken Vessel (1994) Kate Ross (Julian Kestrel Mysteries)

A Broken VesselSet in England in 1824

“I know you think my life is somewhat lacking in purpose.”

“I think you fritter away your time, if that’s what you mean.”

“I liked the way I put it better.”

“We require them to confess their sins, as the first step toward repentance. Then they must submit to a regimen of hard work, prayer, and penitence. We impose the strictest discipline. Only by learning to conquer their wicked appetites and impulses can they regain some shred of the character they’ve thrown away.”

There’s no second-guessing what’s past, or knowing what might have made a difference. It’s arrogant, it’s a waste of time.”

Mr. Harcourt then questioned her closely about how she fell from grace. She was hard put to answer. She could not remember a moment when she fell. She had been born about as low as a girl could get, and simply went on from there.
