MY BOOK BEGINNING
From where he sat, Steve could see right down the length of the studio.
-- Brother and Sister by Joanna Trollope.
This is really a very good beginning because it focuses the attention on Steve, the owner of a design studio. It is only after a while that the story develops and you realize that it is going to center on Steve's wife Nathalie and her brother -- both who were adopted.
Trollope is such a favorite of mine, even though she is a relatively new favorite. I am going to have to make an author page for her so I can keep track of my progress through her bibliography.
