Book Beginning: Light of the Northern Dancers



BOOK BEGINNINGS ON FRIDAYS

THANKS FOR JOINING ME ON FRIDAYS FOR BOOK BEGINNING FUN!

MY BOOK BEGINNING



Minutes after noon, as Aiden McBride rummaged through saddlebags for a bite of grease-soaked biscuit to welcome midday, the big bay horse beneath him startled and froze.
Light of the Northern Dancers by Robin F. Gainey. This book of  historical fiction tells the exciting and romantic story of Eden Rose, a Scottish aristocrat struggling to survive on her Wyoming ranch. When her no-good husband abandons Rose and her brother disappears into the Bighorn mountains, Rose turns to help from her best friend, Maddie True, and a Lakota holy man.

PORTLAND EVENTS:

February 27, 2018: Robin will appear on Afternoon Live on KATU-2 at 3:00 pm PST.

February 28, 2018: Robin will be reading and signing Light of the Northern Dancers at Annie Bloom's Books in Portland next Wednesday at 7:00 pm. Click here for details.





Please join me every Friday to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author’s name.

EARLY BIRDS & SLOWPOKES: This weekly post goes up Thursday evening for those who like to get their posts up and linked early on. But feel free to add a link all week.

FACEBOOK: Rose City Reader has a Facebook page where I post about new and favorite books, book events, and other bookish tidbits, as well as link to blog posts. I'd love a "Like" on the page! You can go to the page here to Like it. I am happy to Like you back if you have a blog or professional Facebook page, so please leave a comment with a link and I will find you.

TWITTER, ETC: If you are on Twitter, Instagram, Google+, or other social media, please post using the hash tag #BookBeginnings. I try to follow all Book  Beginnings participants on whatever interweb sites you are on, so please let me know if I have missed any and I will catch up.

TIE IN: The Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice is a natural tie in with this event and there is a lot of cross over, so many people combine the two. The idea is to post a teaser from page 56 of the book you are reading and share a link to your post. Find details and the Linky for your Friday 56 post on Freda’s Voice.

The description does sound fun.

I do like the Wyoming setting, especially the Bighorn Mountains.

Interesting that the first line doesn't introduce the main character.

Lovely blurb and beginning. Happy weekend to you.

I enjoy historical fiction, but I so rarely read it in this particular setting unless it's over in Europe. I'm not sure why . . . This sounds like a good one, Gillion. I will have to give it a try!

I've recently read about the Lakotas. Can't remember which book.

I love the premise and the cover is so eye catching. I can't imagine how difficult such a transition would be!
