Book Beginnings on Friday (7)

Book Beginnings on Friday at Rose City Reader is the place to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.

My choice this week is from Living London by Kristin Vayden.

"The tears started to falleven before I opened the stiff door to the nursing home.  The only thing worse than saying goodbye was not saying goodbye."

What a sad beginning.  I haven't even started this one (other than the sentences above), so I wonder who it was?

Book blurb:
What if you found yourself waking up two hundred years in the past? What if you wore the gowns and waltzed around Almacks? What if you found out first hand just how dangerous a rake could be, or how much fun? For Jocelyn Westin, this is her reality. But reading all the historical fiction in the world could never have prepared her for what it would be like to be “Living London.”


  1. Wow, now I'm very intrigued. Thanks for sharing...and here's MY FRIDAY MEMES POST

  2. That does sound like a sad opening, it makes me wonder about the situation the character is in. I hope you enjoy the book! Here's mine

  3. Oh, that is a sad beginning. It sounds like the lead character has quite a journey ahead. It has me curious from that first sentence on how everything is going to work out. Have a great weekend!
    Happy Reading,
