Book Beginnings - Treasuring Emma by Kathleen Fuller


This is a weekly meme hosted at A Few More Pages where you grab the book you're currently reading and share the first sentence.


 

I'm currently reading 'Treasuring Emma' by Kathleen Fuller

First sentence:


"Emma, I'm so sorry."
    Emma Shetler lifted her gaze to meet Moriah Miller's eyes. Moriah had been a good friend to her over the past year, and Emma had never noticed until now how blue her eyes were. Blue like the summer sky, and at this moment, full of compassion.


So far I'm really enjoying 'Treasuring Emma'. I found the first sentence interesting and a good way for a book to begin. I think it will make a reader think 'What is Moriah sorry for?' That question is answered within the next few sentences.

  2. That opening certainly makes you want to know what happened, or what Moriah may have said or done to be sorry about. Enjoy your story. I did a BB post this week too.

  3. I like descriptions like this, so thanks for sharing! :) At first I thought Moriah was a man, and was amazed at how ravishing he sounded already! Haha oops!

  4. So, is it historical fiction? Or is it Amish fiction like Beverly Lewis writes?

  5. I'm not sure I've ever read a book that started with an apology.

    Great teaser!

    Here is my BBF :)

  6. I like the descriptive nature of this beginning, and I get the feeling that the person speaking is really sincere.

    Thanks for participating in Book Beginnings!

    'Treasuring Emma' is Amish fiction. ☺
