Book Beginnings - 1/4/2019


*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.

My Book Beginnings is taken from THE LOST GIRLS OF PARIS by Pam Jenoff:

LOVE Pam Jenoff's books.

I actually just finished this marvelous book.

"If not for the second worst mistake of Grace Healey's life, she never would have found the suitcase.  At nine-twenty on a Tuesday morning, Grace should have been headed south on the first of two buses she took to get downtown to the Lower East Side office where she worked."
