My Book Beginnings is taken from WOMAN 99 by Greer MacCallister:
"Goldengrove devoured my sister every time I closed my eyes.  I saw the angle of her neck as she bobbed her head shyly, ducking it low, even though the high Moorish arch of the door soared far above her. The shift from day-bright sunshine to shrouded darkness as she passed inside."

  1. I am almost done...it is quite good.

    Historical fiction, women's fiction, and mystery all rolled into one.

    Thanks for stopping.
