My book beginnings is taken from TAHOE DARK by Todd Borg:
 

""We got your son Jonas," a voice on the phone said.  It was a strange, buzzy voice, vaguely feminine, warping like it had been hung in the wind to twist and turn."

Mr. Borg's books are ALWAYS very good.

Books finished the last two weeks:

THE VELVET HOURS by Alyson Richman

Loved the book.

NEWS OF THE WORLD by Paulette Jiles:



Captain Kidd travels around the country reading the news while he is transporting a ten-year old girl that had been captured by the Indians and then returned. 

I enjoyed the book.

Love the descriptions of the undeveloped country but happy I didn't live back then.
