Book Beginnings on Friday

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Becky at Page Turners. 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.
Impatient With Desire by Gabrielle Burton (Voice/Hyperion Books, March 2010)

"Think of all the roads a man and a woman walk until they reach the road they'll walk together."

If this line and the title makes you think this is a romance, think again! While the narrator and her husband do love each other very much, they are also Tamsen and George Donner in 1846, trapped in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Do you think you know the rest of the story about The Donner party? Well, you can find out...

Beautiful cover and beautiful opening sentence. But will there be cannibalism?

Profound opening sentence -- an interesting opener is a good omen!
