Welcome to our Friday Memes, where we celebrate excerpts from our current or up-next reads.
Book Beginnings is hosted by A Few More Pages,
and The Friday 56 is led Freda’s Voice.
Today I grabbed a book off of my TBR stack. Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand, by Helen Simonson, tells the tale of Maj. Ernest Pettigrew, an honor-bound Englishman and widower, and the very embodiment of duty and pride.
Beginnings: Major Pettigrew was still upset about the phone call from his brother’s wife and so he answered the doorbell without thinking.
Uh-oh…that makes me wonder what or whom he’s going to see on the other side of the door.
P. 56: The carved sideboard still displayed his grandmother’s silver soup tureen and candlesticks, but an oxygen pump took up half the surface.
What are you featuring today? I hope you’ll stop by and share….
