Book Beginning: In the Shadow of War by Patrick M. Garry

BOOK BEGINNINGS ON FRIDAYS
THANKS FOR JOINING ME ON FRIDAYS FOR BOOK BEGINNING FUN!

MY BOOK BEGINNING



No one ever though of Ricky as my older brother. But he was.

-- In the Shadow of War by Patrick M. Garry. A family story, a love story, a Vietnam War story -- all set in a small, Midwest town in 1970.



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.

SOCIAL MEDIA: If you are on Twitter, Instagram, 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.

YOUR BOOK BEGINNING





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.


MY FRIDAY 56

Professor Donlin, an instructor in the English Department, held out a strange-looking pipe to her even before she took off her coat. That was when she decided, after seeing what was happening to some of the other women's clothing, to keep all of hers and head for home.

This book sounds like a good one.

This sounds very interesting and I wonder what was happening to some of the other women's clothing - I'd decide to keep all of mine and head for home too!

Your beginning reminded me of my brother Ricky, who passed away a few years ago.
I added you to the Linky. Happy weekend!

This probably isn't one towards which I'd gravitate, but I do hope you enjoy it.

Sounds interesting even though I tend to avoid reading books set in that time period. This week I am featuring Grave Witch by Kalayna Price - a book I first read before I started blogging. Happy reading!
