I am out of town and will try to visit.
My Book  Beginnings is taken from DREAMS OF FALLING by Karen White:
"I am dead.  Yet I smell the blooming evening primrose and hear the throaty chirps and creaky rattles of the purple martins flitting home across the marsh."

LOVING THIS BOOK...don't let this depressing beginning scare you away.  

It is another MARVELOUS book by Karen White filled with wonderful characters and a terrific story line.
