Book Beginnings - 12/7/2018


*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 AU PAIR by Emma Rous:
 

"We have no photographs of our early days, Danny and I.  A six-month gap yawns in the Mayes family album after we were born.  No first-day-at-school pictures for Edwin, no means of telling which of us two looked more like him at the beginning."

  3. This one is coming up soon on my review stack. The beginning makes me curious. This week I have a historical mystery - A Moment in Crime by Amanda Allen. Happy reading!
