*Please join Rose City Reader every Friday to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author's name.  *Taken directly from Rose City Reader's Blog Page.  
 ***************
My book beginnings is taken from AS BRIGHT AS HEAVEN by Susan Meissner:

 
"Morning light shimmers on the apricot horizon as I stand at the place where my baby boy rests.  Stouthearted chickadees are singing in the day, just like they have done every other winter's dawn, but when this same sun sets tonight, I will be miles away from them, and inside an unfamiliar house."
