Book Beginnings - 3/24/2017

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 WIDOW OF WALL STREET by Randy Susan Meyers:


"Phoebe never hated her husband more than when she visited him in prison.  The preceding nightmare of ordeals--eleven hours hauling a suitcase by bus, train, and cab, her muscles screaming from the weight--were the coming attractions of the misery she faced the next day."

  3. Lots of good books on your blog today. All of them sound good to me! I like the opening to Widow of Wall Street, and I'm wondering why her husband is in jail. I'd keep reading to find out more.
    My Friday post features The Pecan Man.
