Today I’m spotlighting an ARC from the Amazon Vine program. Family Pictures, by Jane Green, promises to be my favorite kind of read.
Back then, when life seemed so simple, before she knew what life was capable of throwing at her, Sylvie was a natural worrier. Anxiety followed her around like a small dank cloud, convincing her that something terrible was just about to happen. As a child, she worried about her mother’s rages, which didn’t stop them coming. As a young woman, she worried about making enough money as a textile designer, which meant she had to supplement her career by painting houses. As a young mother, she worried Eve would roll onto her front and never wake up, and when Jonathan was late home from work, she worried something had happened to him.
Whew! I’m exhausted from all this worry…but what do you think?
Teaser: Sylvie gets out of bed and walks naked to the bathroom, wiggling her bottom deliberately, still grinning over her shoulder at him as she walks, blowing him a kiss as she closes the bathroom door. (p. 33)
I think she stopped worrying for a few minutes! lol
