This week's Book Beginnings is taken from Bellman And Black by Diane Setterfield. I actually finished the book this evening but am still going to use it as my book beginnings.
"Six days out of every seven the area along the Burford Road resounded with the clattering, booming, clanging, rattling, thundering noise of Bellman's Mill."
It is an OK read...but not bad. It has dark themes.
She also wrote THE THIRTEENTH TALE...LOVED IT.
These are two books I read last week.
ONCE WE WERE BROTHERS wasn't able to be featured because I read it in one day over the weekend so I am putting it below with the link to my review along with THE OUTCASTS that I featured on BOOK BEGINNINGS last week.
ONCE WE WERE BROTHERS by Ronald H. Balson
This book would have been featured this week had I not finished it over the weekend, and it is one that I highly recommend. No beginning lines, just the review.
THE OUTCASTS by Kathleen Kent
"A hard fall had come upon Lucinda, throwing her to the floor of her bedroom, chafing an elbow and bruising the skin on one cheek. It had happened on a Monday, so that when the dizzying waves came over her again on the following Wednesday, she stood with her back pressed flat against a door for balance, and her hands balled at her sides."
