  1. I really enjoyed that one!

    My first line today comes from Karen Sargent’s ‘Waiting For Butterflies’:

    “Maggie heard the key in the front door and looked at the clock on the nightstand: 1:48 a.m. Nearly twenty four hours had passed since the phone had jarred her awake and Sam out of bed.”

  2. Good morning. 🙂 My first lines comes from Chapter 2, “This Rough Magic,” by Mary Stewart.

    “The bay was small and sheltered, a sickle of pure white sand holding back the aquamarine sea, and held in its turn by the towering backdrop of cliff and pine and golden-green trees.”

    THERE IS A MOMENT, JUST BEFORE EVERY STORM, when the entire world pauses.
    Siren’s Fury by Mary Weber
