FRIDAY MEMES: BOOK BEGINNINGS & FRIDAY 56 — DEC. 17

 

 

 

 

 

 

Welcome to our Friday Memes.

Book Beginnings is hosted by A Few More Pages. Just post the opening sentence(s), and then tell your reactions.

The Friday 56 is hosted by Freda’s Voice.

Rules:
*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56.
*Find any sentence that grabs you.
*Post it.
*Link it here.

 

Today I’m spotlighting a book I received from Amazon Vine (an ARC), called The Other Family, by Joanna Trollope.

An unexpected line in a will leads to complications and new beginnings in Trollope’s eminently readable latest (after Friday Nights).

 

Beginning:  Looking back, it astonished her that none of them had broken down in the hospital.  Even Dilly, who could be relied on to burst into tears over a shed eyelash, had been completely mute.

Now I’m curious…aren’t you?  We know that some kind of hospital emergency has unfolded—something apparently astonishing enough to leave someone mute.

56:  “It won’t take long,” Chrissie said.  “It’s merely a formality.  I know exactly what’s in that will because Dad and I agreed to it together…”

 

So that’s it for today…what did you choose?  I hope you’ll stop by, share some comments, and link back to your own posts.
