Book Beginnings - 11/10/2017

My book beginnings is taken from CARNEGIE'S MAID by Marie Benedict: 

"The gentle melody of a Christmas song lifted into the air of his study from the street below.  The music did nothing to change his mood or his actions.  Ensconced behind the black walnut desk in his luxuriously appointed St. Nicholas Hotel suite, fountain pen in hand, Andrew Carnegie wrote like a madman."

I actually finished this book, but I wanted EVERYONE to know about it.  It was a lovely, interesting read.
