My Book Beginnings is taken from THE SUMMER COUNTRY by Lauren Willig:


"Her cousin was standing by a barouche, a barouche so shiny and new that the black lacquer dazzled the eyes.

To be fair, Emily's eyes were dazzled already, sun-blind, rainbows dancing everywhere: she felt dizzy with wonder and delight."


  1. I am enjoying Ms. Willig's newest.

    Have you read it?

    Thanks for stopping.

  2. Intrigued, I immediately went to look up what a barouche is. Always fun to learn new words.

    The cover is delightful. Thank you for sharing.

    1. I had to do the same thing. :)

      This book is excellent, and it is filled with words I had to look up. Thankfully I am reading on my Kindle, and can get immediate definitions. :)

      Thanks for commenting, Roberta.

  3. To be dazzled with wonder and delight. I want to feel that feeling right now. My BB and F56 quotes

    1. That would be a terrific feeling. :)
