Author’s Favorite Quotes from The Last Hour
Part 2
By Charles Sheehan-Miles

Do these people have no respect at all?

In the midst of what is a very heavy book with a lot of deep themes in it, I tried to have some light moments.  This line happens when Sarah discovers that the surgeons are playing New Kids on the Block while operating.  I took a little bit of heat from my beta readers over that.

Ray just said, “Those weren’t the cards we drew, baby. But we’ll meet it together.”

Ray and Carrie’s mantra is that no matter what happens because of the terrible challenges they face, they’ll meet those challenges hand in hand. A big part of the story I wanted to tell was how important love is for redemption and courage.

I’m waiting for you, soldier.

So, this is my number one favorite from the story.  I usually go to bed thinking about what I’m going to write the next morning, and one night early in the writing of this book a scene popped into my head. I only had the one line, and honestly it brought tears to my eyes.  I still can’t read that section of the story without getting a little sniffly.
