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 After House by Mary Roberts Rinehart.

“With the approach of night our vigilance was doubled. There was no thought of sleep among the crew, and, with the twilight, there was a distinct return of the terror of the morning.”

    1. Hello! Thanks for visiting my blog! Sorry couldn’t comment on your blog as I’m still having issues with Blogger hosted blogs with OpenID and Word verification.

      Umberto Eco is always complicated. I have given up trying to understand him.

      I have often had trouble falling asleep when I am too tense or disturbed. So, I know how waiting for the dawn feels like.
