Hanneke de Groot lives!

A friend of this page made this and shared it with me the other day. It's a quote from my novel THE SIGNATURE OF ALL THINGS, where Hanneke the housekeeper gives our heroine Alma the goods on how to endure the suffering and sorrows of life.

Oh, how I loved writing Hanneke de Groot, in all her pragmatic, solid glory!

Grind your cares under your bootheels, my friends, and soldier on.
