Quotes

Belinda Simpson: [after a townsman tried to burn down the orphanage] I don't understand how someone can believe God wanted them to do such a thing.
Hattie Clarence: If you want to believe something badly enough, you look for justification. What he did had nothing to do with God.

lack of attention to detail
25 January 2015 | by naffy_nafSee all my reviews

Some attention to detail would have paid off. Infusing a cloudy solution into patients blood would have caused an immense amount of pain because there is way too much in there and contents aren't properly dissolved. I didn't see a single patient stir from the pain. I can assure you one of those patients would have woken up in pain because they couldn't all be equally ill. They probably should have checked with an educated doctor or scientist before they made up those "solutions."

Dramatically, the characters also didn't sell. Unfounded frustration and angry outbursts don't make for good viewing.
