Book Beginnings on Friday

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme now hosted by Katy from A Few More Pages. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.

While I Was Gone by Sue Miller
"It's odd, I suppose, that when I think back over all that happened in that terrible time, one of my sharpest memories should be of some few moments the day before everything began."

Does this sound a little ominous? Because it should. The next day, someone comes back into our protagonist's life from 30 years earlier, bringing with him unwelcome memories of a violent event.

It does create a suspenseful tone.

Just poppin' on by to say "Hi!" this Friday.

It does, and it sounds like a very interesting book!

Have a fantastic Halloween weekend!

That is a terrific opening sentence. I like openings with some meat on their bones.
