My Book Beginnings is taken from THE MISSING YEARS by Lexie Elliott:
"The Manse is watching me. At first I don't notice it, I'm too involved in my study of the imposing gray stone edifice before me. It's a tall structure -- three stories, and the first two must have high ceilings -- with a turret and stepped gables like sets of staircases."
