The Friday 56

The Friday 56 is a bookish meme hosted by Freda’s Voice.

*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56.
*Find any sentence that grabs you.
*Post it.
*Link up at Freda’s site

Today’s sentence comes from The Queen of Hearts  by Wilkie Collins, one of my favourite reads from last year.

“I could not imagine that the loud sobbing and moaning came from her, and I ran down terrified into the kitchen to ask the servants who was crying so violently in my aunt’s room.”

    1. It is a sad story but heart warming nonetheless.

      Thanks! I was surprised that this blog name wasn’t taken yet. I was so happy to get my first choice as blog name!

      Hope you are having a great weekend too!

    1. The Queen of Hearts is a good read. It is a collection of ten short stories set within a connecting narrative. The stories are a mixture of adventure, romance, suspense, mystery, etc, etc. I wasn’t disappointed by it.
