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. Happy Reading!!

    I am only about 40 pages into my book. No opinion yet, but it is set after WWII has ended.

    Thanks for stopping everyone.

  3. The opening makes me wonder where and when this book takes place. I'd keep reading to find out more. I like the comparison to a sack of potatoes!
