Opening Sentence of the Day: The Red Tent
"We have been lost to each other for so long."
-- The Red Tent by Anita Diamant.
This is our Book Club book for March. I know it was very popular, but we haven't read it yet.
I saw the audiobook at the library, so grabbed it. But I only made through about five minutes before I had to abandon it because the reader's inflections were rubbing me the wrong way -- too melodramatic.
Fortunately, I had the paper book on my TBR shelf. I will read this one with my eyes instead of my ears and give the narrator whatever tone of voice I want.
Book Beginnings on Fridays is a Friday "opening sentence" event hosted by Becky at Page Turners.
