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.
