My book beginnings is taken from THE NIGHT THE LIGHTS WENT OUT by Karen White:


"If there was one thing that Merilee Talbot Dunlap had learned in eleven years of marriage, it was the simple fact that you could live with a person for a long time and never really know him."

  4. The opening of Karen White's book draws me in. Happy reading, happy weekend, Elizabeth! (I began to read Glory Over Everything and am enjoying it. But, I may need to take a break to read something else, a long overdue book.)

  5. I like the character's name and that's not the usual first line. Sets the tone very well.

  8. There are some books I just can't resist because of their themes. Baking is one of those themes. I'm glad to see you loved The Baker's Secret.

  9. There are some wonderful titles in your review collection. I am very interested in historical fiction, so The Women of The Castle, A Bridge Across The Ocean, and The Baker's Secret look like books I would enjoy. This is why I love blog hops: I find lots of ideas for new books to read. Thanks for visiting my blog, and have a lovely week.
