Book Beginnings: March

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.

March by Geraldine Brooks

"This is what I write to her: The clouds tonight embossed the sky."

What do you write friends and family from the battlefield? Do you tell them what you're experiencing? what you've seen? Or do you try to gloss over the horrors? Mr. March is a chaplain in the Union army during the Civil War.

I liked this book very much when I read it. Discussed with a book group. A different look at the characters from LITTLE WOMEN. Are you liking it?

I've had this one on my shelf for years but haven't picked it up yet. I've got Little Women coming up so it might be fun to read the two together.

I'm fascinated by this period of history, so I'm sure I'd enjoy this book. I love "embossed the sky."
My Friday post features WHAT WE KEEP.
