Thank you for joining me for Book Beginnings on Fridays, where we share the opening sentences (or so) from the books we are reading this week. You can also share from a book you want to highlight, even if you are not reading it right now.
MY BOOK BEGINNING
Spring had come to New York, the eight-fifteen train from Great Neck had come to the Pennsylvania terminus, and G. Ellery Cobbold, that stout economic royalist, had come to his downtown office, all set to prise another wad of currency out of the common people.

Please add the link to your book beginnings post in the box below. If you share on social media, please use the hashtag #bookbeginnings.
Freda at Freda's Voice hosts another teaser event on Fridays. Participants share a two-sentence teaser from page 56 of the book they are reading -- or from 56% of the way through the audiobook or ebook. Please visit Freda's Voice for details and to leave a link to your post.
MY FRIDAY 56
From Spring Fever:
