Opening Sentence: People of the Book


I might as well say, right from the jump: it wasn't my usual kind of job.
-- People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks, about the mysteries of a real-life 15th Century illuminated Hebrew manuscript called the Sarajevo Haggadah.

Despite the popularity of this book, I haven't read it before.  It is terrific.

It also counts for several challenges I'm working on: the European Reading Challenge, the Eastern European Reading Challenge, my TBR challenges, and the What's In a Name? Challenge.
