Book Beginning: Morning Will Come by Billy Lombardo

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

MY BOOK BEGINNING



Curbside at the United terminal, Alan Taylor looks for a green Mazda with his wife in the driver's seat, three kids in the back. 

Morning Will Come by Billy Lombardo. The story of a marriage and family struggling with the disappearance of the oldest daughter.

Morning Will Come is a "re-issued, re-titled, re-edited, re-beautifully jacketed version" of Lombardo's 2009 novel, How to Hold a Woman. The cover is riveting. This new edition is available for pre-sale from Tortoise Books and launches this month.

From the back cover:
Alan and Audrey Taylor are raising three children and coping with the demands of busy careers when their eldest child, Isabel, on the verge of precocious womanhood, goes missing in the middle of the night. Thus begins this intimate portrait of a barely functioning family left to decipher the mysteries of how to go on in the aftermath of violence and loss. Morning Will Come, a haunting, sometimes raw exploration of grief, is also by turns hilarious and sexy, exploring the bonds of blood and the redemptive power of love.

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

Her eyes adjusted to the dim glow of the city lights filtered through the cloth dressings of the windows on either side of his bed. She tiptoed deeper into the room, toward the left side of his bed.

  3. I agree it does sound like a powerful read, both happy and very sad.

    I'm slightly cheating today, as I am using my Tuesday Teaser as my book beginning - have to be out a lot of today and have not prepared a post in advance :) Hope you have a lovely day, and a restful weekend!
