Read-a-Thon 2013: Hour 14

I just finished Blessed Are the Cheesemakers by Sarah-Kate Lynch, and I loved it! Here, in Hour 14, Nea is asking us to share a quote from our reading.  I've already mentioned a couple of quotes that I liked, so let me see if I can find another...

OK, so Kit's life has fallen apart--he's lost his wife, become an alcoholic, lost his job, etc.-- and he's gone off to what he thinks is just a little country retreat in Ireland where they happen to make cheese. The current proprietors have decided that he's to be their new cheesemaker, but his current state has others questioning whether or not he's right for the job.

"And a man in his state is all right for cheesemaking?"
"In my experience there's not a state in the world," Fee said matter-of-factly, "that cannot be greatly improved by close proximity to cheese. Especially ours," he added.

Amen to that! Cheese makes everything better.

Speaking of that, I might go find some cheese to snack on before I pick my next read and delve into Hour 15.
