Book Beginnings - 4/13/2018

 
*Please join Rose City Reader every Friday to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. 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 BEACH HOUSE REUNION by Mary Alice Monroe:



"All roads lead home.  That thought mingled with the soothing sound of Debussy as Cara descended from the majestic highlands of Tennessee toward the sultry low country of South Carolina."

Enjoyable so far.
