Book Beginnings on Fridays - The Quality of Silence by Rosamund Lupton
Book Beginnings on Fridays is hosted by Rose City Reader and as she says the idea of this meme is
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

the website and you can use #BookBeginnings on Twitter.
