Diane at Bibliophile By the Sea hosts this Tuesday meme. It is a place to share the first paragraph in the first chapter of a book you are reading or hope to get to soon. It is a great place to see what others are reading and add to your ever growing list of title to explore. So let's share. Write a post and then go link up at Diane's blog.
Simon & Schuster April 2016
Robert's familiar rap on the door came as I was studying a miniature portrait of myself. The small painting, meant as a parting gift to my beloved, had just been delivered, and I was debating the artist's interpretation. I had to admit that Miss Peale's suggestion to paint my face in profile, and thus avoid the black patch covering my left eye, was a good idea. Too, she had captured my features well in this, my thirty-third year: the length of my oval face, my aquiline nose, and the cleft in my square cut jaw. But I disliked the distinct set she had given my mouth.
Robert knocked again.
"Yes", I called, and my butler entered.
I read The Kitchen House and loved it. So I had to download this audio book so I could again go back and find out what's next. This is a stand alone novel but brings us again to 1830, the Underground Railroad and life on the plantations of the South. I am looking forward to this one, would you read on?
