This week's Book Beginnings is taken from THE FUNERAL DRESS by Susan Gregg Gilmore. I am already enjoying it and just started it on Wednesday.
"Emmalee Bullard became a Tennewa girl on the last Thursday in May. She woke early that morning, like always, in the back of a two-room house squeezed in tight at the foot of Pine Mountain. But today she'd slipped away beneath the oaks and cedars without waking her father."
I actually just finished this book but am including it in this week's post.
NORTH OF SUPPOSED TO BE by Marcia Ferguson.
"Think of a puppy. A puppy with melting eyes and velvety ears, the shape of a cracker. A bouncy Boston terrier puppy, crazily chasing a ball.
Moments ticked by as the dog reverie failed to calm Bronwyn's racing heart.
A sunset over the ocean. No, maybe seagulls gliding on the wind.
Bronwyn breathed a choppy sigh. Her nerves were getting the best of her."
