Friday 56 /Book Beginnings

"Hey--I gotta go," David says, his voice suddenly changing. "'The students are getting restless and Beth just walked in."fredasvoice

"Whenever my mother drove us from coastal Mississippi to New Orleans to visit my father on the weekend, she would say, "Lock the doors." After my mother and father split for the last time before they divorced, my father moved to New Orleans, while we remained in DeLisle, Mississippi."rosecityreader


  1. Why would she be visiting him if they divorced? Also, the title makes it sound like the plant men like crops which is quite a funny image. I hope you're enjoying both of your reads though! :) Thanks for sharing and I hope you have a good weekend!

  2. Both books sound good, but MEN WE REAPED appeals to me more -- maybe because I've been to New Orleans and I'm a Southern writer!
    Here's my Friday56/Book Beginning post.

  3. The faces on the cover of your 56 look familiar... like a couple of actors I can think of from daytime tv.

    Love the beginning's snippet. Sounds like my kind of read!

    Happy weekend!
