Book Beginnings - 8/19/16

 
*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. 
 *************** 
My book beginnings is taken from THE CONFECTIONER'S TALE by Laura Madeleine:


"The boy ran up the stairs of the metro, emerging into the quiet evening.  It was earliest April, and cold enough still for his breath to mist in the air before him.  For a moment, he listened to the bells of a church somewhere, striking ten o'clock."

Books finished last three weeks:

BEHIND CLOSED DOORS by B. A. Paris

  3. The opening makes me want to know more -- where is the story set? why is the boy alone and where is he going?
    Beautiful cover too.
