Pale Morning Light with Violet Swan by Deborah Reed -- BOOK BEGINNINGS


Pale Morning Light with Violet Swan is the captivating title of Deborah Reed's new novel. Violet Swan is a famous abstract artist living on the Oregon coast. When an earthquake hits her oceanside community, family members come to town to help and 93-year-old Violet may have to face secrets she though she had buried. Looks like a winner!

Pale Morning Light with Violet Swan launches on October 6 from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. You can pre-order from many online sources through Deborah Reed's website.

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.

THE FRIDAY 56 


Another weekly teaser event is The Friday 56, hosted by Freda at Freda's Voice, where you can find details and add a link to your post. The idea is to share a two-sentence teaser from page 56 of the book you are featuring. You can also find a teaser from 56% of the way through your ebook or audiobook.

MY FRIDAY 56

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.
