Book Beginnings: The House Girl

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader. 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.

The House Girl by Tara Conklin
"Mister hit Josephine with the palm of his hand across her left cheek and it was then she knew she would run."

What's odd is that Mister never had hit her before, and there was no reason for it this time. And there never is a reason given. It felt a little contrived to me.
