Book Beginnings: Truth and Beauty

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.

Truth and Beauty by Ann Patchett

"The thing you can count on in life is that Tennessee will always be scorching hot in August."

I can attest this is completely true. And it's also humid.

Beautiful cover. With a bug and the TN heat/humidity in the quote I wonder if this is a steamy summer setting.

It's humid here in Florida too, and I don't like it!

Love the cover!

I like to know a book's setting right up front, which this author does. I've never been to Tennessee in August, but I can attest to the fact that it's plenty hot and humid in Texas in summer!
My Friday post features Widow’s Tears.

This book is on my wish list! I love the beginning, and can relate having spent several summers in Memphis. Something about TN and the reader can imagine the setting right away.
