Book Beginnings / Friday 56

Book Beginnings

"I lost my only sister in the last days of November. It's a rotten time to lose someone, when all the world is dying too and darkness comes on earlier and when the chill rains fall it seems the very sky is weeping. Not that there's ever a good time to lose your best friend., but it seemed somehow harder to sit there and watch in that hospital room, with the white-coated specialists coming and going, and see only grey clouds beyond the hard windows that offered no warmth and no hope."

Friday 56

"Claire had set a sundial squarely at the centre of her garden in the one place where the sunlight always reached, and with a ring of upturned earth around it, ready to be planted."


  1. That beginning is extremely sad, and the 56 quite the opposite. Looks like it is a great read!

    Happy weekend & happy Valentines day!

  2. I love Kearsley's books!!! I want to start reading The Firebird soon.

  3. A pretty cover and I agree with freda. Starts out sad and then gives a sense of hope. Thanks for stopping by fundinmental and checking out my 56. See you soon. ^_^
