Please join me and other book lovers over at Rose City Reader today for Book Beginnings. It is always interesting to find out what other bloggers are reading and their opinions about the books. I hope you check it out and enjoy it as much as I do.
My book today is “The Book of Love” by Kathleen McGowan and it is the second book in a series of three. Here are the first few lines:
“Heavy beeswax candles dripped along the perimeter of the cavern, illuminating the cramped meeting space. The small community prayed with soft devotion, following the lead of the ethereal woman who stood before them at the stone altar.”
Can’t you just picture the stone walls of the cavern and the candlelight flickering against them with this “ethereal” woman leading a prayer service? I have really enjoyed these books so far. Now, don’t get me wrong, I am a Christian and I know that these are FICTION, but the storylines are really interesting and I have found myself looking up many of the historical names and places mentioned in these books. The writer is excellent at weaving fiction with historical fact.
