Friday 56

I found a new meme today that looked like SO MUCH FUN! :o) It's called the Friday 56, and it's hosted by Storytime with Tonya and Friends. Here are the rules:

* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section of this blog.
*Post a link along with your post back to this blog.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

So here's what I've got... It's from A Place in the Sun by Michael Phillips.

By the time we got through the door, Pa was already in Mr. Royce's office. His voice was loud enough that you could hear it through the whole building. Everyone else's business had ceased, and they stood stock-still with wide open eyes, listening to the argument going on in the next room.

This book is book 4 in the Journals of Corrie Belle Hollister series. I've only read the first 2 in this series, so I can't really say anything about this particular one. However, I can say that if you've never read anything by Michael Phillips, you are missing out on a real treat. He writes some great historicals that you can tell he's done some research on. I would also highly recommend one of his newer series--Shenandoah Sisters. Those four books are some of the best books I've read set during the Civil War that I've read in a long time.


  1. Thanks for participating! You left your comment on an old post so I'm going to link here on today's post if you don't mind so everyone else can have a chance to look at yours if they want.

  2. bad, Tonya! Thanks for catching my mistake. :o)

  3. My Grandma went NUTS over the Shenandoah sisters series, I haven't read them yet but they must be awesome!

  4. Renee--

    I remember being about 3 or 4 chapters into book one, and by chapter 5, I was hooked! You'll definitely have to put them down to read sometime. :o)


I love your comments!! They make me happier than cold sweet tea on a hot summer day! :o)
