Book Beginnings - 5/9/14


*Please join Rose City Reader every Friday to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author's name.  *Taken directly from Rose City Reader's Blog Page.

 *****************
This book's beginning is taken from CHATEAU OF SECRETS by Melanie Dobson.


"Candlelight flickered on the medieval walls as Gisele Duchant stepped into the warmth of the nave. The shadows in the sacristy were the only witnesses to her secret--no one but she and Michel knew the same small room that stored the vestments and supplies for their family's chapelle was also a hiding place."

Just finished the book...LOVED IT.

Review is in the book's title above.

I finished the book last week.  It was very good.  

My review is in the book's title above.
