Book Beginnings - 9/7/2018

*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 THE CLOCKMAKER'S DAUGHTER by Kate Morton:

"We came to Birchwood Manor because Edward said that it was haunted.  It wasn't, not then, but it's a dull man who lets truth stand in the way of a good story, and Edward was never that.  His passion, his blinding faith in whatever he professed, was one of the things I fell in love with."

I LOVE Kate Morton's books and her beautiful writing and the involved story lines in her books.

THE CLOCKMAKER'S DAUGHTER is all that and more, but this book took a while to get connected.  Once you were connected, though, it all started to come together in her marvelous Kate Morton style.


  1. Happy Friday...I hope you are enjoying book you are reading.

    Thanks for stopping.

  2. I love that opening about haunted houses and not wanting to give away a good story. I'd read on. My Friday Quotes

    1. I just finished the book. EXCELLENT as always, but so many characters.

      Thanks for commenting, Anne.

  3. I do love Kate Morton's books, although I haven't read many of them. I love clocks and stories about them...I have this one on my list.

    Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “GOOD LUCK WITH THAT”

    1. Her books are ALWAYS so good.

      This one was FAB, but a bit confusing. It did brilliantly resolve itself in the end as they always do. :)

      Thanks for commenting, Laurel.
