MY BOOK BEGINNING
From Pale Morning Light with Violet Swan:
Shortly after dawn, Le cygne drifted from the Telefunken radio, and Violet's eyes grew moist at the rise and fall of the cello.
That sets a scene. I'm ready to read more.
YOUR BOOK BEGINNINGS
It couldn't be over 50 degrees out there, and the soft drizzle would make it feel even colder. But it was the red tip of her son's cigarette moving in the dark that Violet found most strange, the faint fog rising above his head.Pale Morning Light with Violet Swan is a perfect book for these crisp days of early fall. I can't wait to spend the weekend with it.
