"...When a situation intrigues me, I ask myself three questions: Suppose? What if? Why? I thought: Suppose a college senior disappeared ten years ago; what if he calls only on Mother's Day; why did he disappear?"
Book #2 - THE THINGS WE DO FOR LOVE by Kristin Hannah
From beginning to end, Kristin Hannah uses visual imagery to compare the external world to the internal struggles of the characters.
For example, "She wasn't sure why, but suddenly she was on edge. Maybe it was the weather; cold and clear. Storms followed days like this, when the sky was scrubbed clean by clouds that raced from west to east. Or maybe it was the college talk. All she knew was that something was not right."
