Book Beginnings – 1/9/2015

*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.


This week’s book beginnings comes from The Secret of Magic by Deborah Johnson:

“Gotcha! Joe Howard Wilson jerked and his hands went straight to his face, and then to his body, for his gun.  Groping.  Feeling.  Saying his prayers.  Checking to make sure that he was awake and what had happened in that forest in Italy, all the killing, was over.”

There are two covers.  This is the cover I have, and I like it better.  🙂

Anything with a typewriter on it, catches my eye.

I am still a bit confused about what is going on, but the writing is beautiful, and the characters are authentic and likeable.
