SAME AS LAST WEEK....A BIT SLOW IN THE READING DEPARTMENT!!
***************
My book beginnings is taken from THE WOMEN IN THE CASTLE by Jessica Shattuck:

 

"The entire cart ride from the train station to Burg Lingenfels, Benita lay on the musty hay bales in a half stupor, no longer caring what she looked like: a slut or a vagabond reclining in the open air, making her way across the country with all the dignity of a sack of potatoes."

    1. They both were good.

      Love, Alice was my favorite of the two.

      The Good Daughter was good but a bit depressing.

      Thanks for stopping, Karen.
