Book Beginnings: Unforgettable

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.

Unforgettable: A Son, a Mother, and the Lessons of a Lifetime by Scott Simon

"Mother called: 'I can't talk. I'm surrounded by handsome men.' Emergency surgery. If you can hold a thought for her now..."

Sorry, I know this is more than one sentence, but Scott Simon starts each chapter (and ends most of them also) with a tweet that he wrote while sitting beside his mother's hospital bed in her final days. She never lost her sense of humor.

This sounds like a sad story. I'm not up for reading about about dying in real life. I like my deaths fictional. I am spotlighting Fool Me Once by Harlan Coben this week. Happy reading!

Sounds so sad.

Too close to home for me.

Thanks for sharing.
