The Friday 56 #9





This week I'm going to participate once again in Friday 56, sponsored by Freda's Voice.  Here are the rules:


Rules:

*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader
 *Find any sentence, (or few, just don't spoil it) that grabs you.
*Post it.
*Add your (url) post below in Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url. It's that simple.

So here you go:




"Her eyes light up like miniature suns and I can hear Sam giggle in my head.  I take a quick breath against the raw pain it brings.  I can count on one hand the times I heard him make a happy noise like that.  Sanda walks to me, grips my hand in hers, and nods."

  1. This sounds terribly sad. Did she lose her child? I'm not sure I could bear to read this book if she did.
    Here's the link to my Friday post: MADE FOR TWO.

    1. Actually the main character had a younger brother named Sam. "Had" is the way I'm going to put it. It is a very sad, very tough read I think. But somewhat inspiring at times.

    1. You guessed it. Sam is a memory of Piper's, one that she strives to make up for his death.

  6. Sounds like it might be too much for me to read at this time. But I may brave it later.
