Quotes

Narrator: [narration as John 'John Boy' Walton, Jr. reading from his journal] It came as a coincidence that just as I finally completed my first novel, Elizabeth, for the first time, became enthralled with a book. I wondered if what I had written would ever be published and read half so avidly.
