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.
