My book beginnings is taken from STOLEN BEAUTY by Laurie Lico Albanese:


"I was a love-struck newlywed when Hitler came to Austria.  Outside, the Ringstrasse was streaming with cars, trams, and pedestrians in belted trench coasts.  Inside, we were waltzing and drinking French champagne."

You've been invited to a costume party and the theme is classic literature characters. Who would you go as?  (submitted by Billy)

My Answer:

Even though I am not a villain by any means, I would go as my favorite villain:  Mrs. Danvers from Rebecca.
