Book Beginnings On Fridays (The View On The Way Down)
Book Beginnings on Fridays is hosted by Rose City Reader and as she says the idea of this memeis
for you 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. There's a linky list on
the website and you can use #BookBeginnings on Twitter.
Sometimes you start reading a book and know straight away that you're going to like it, this is one of those books for me.
The View On The Way Down by Rebecca Wait
And there they were again.
Later, they would recall this scene. Alone, they would study it for its secrets, trying to fit what they knew now with what they knew then. It was coming. Even then it was coming, even on that beach, years ago - only they didn't realise it.
An astonishing and powerfully moving debut novel.
This novel will open your eyes and break your heart.
is the story of Emma's two brothers – the one who died five years ago
and the one who left home on the day of the funeral and has not returned
It is the story of her parents – who have been keeping
the truth from Emma, and each other. It is a story you will want to talk
about, and one you will never forget.
