Book Beginnings: Season of Sisters

Season of Sisters
This week's Book Beginnings on Friday excerpt is from Season of Sisters by Geralyn Dawson. This is the first paragraph.

Holly Weeks kept her dreams tucked inside her wallet. The list of thirty-two items had been penned in black ink on white paper, folded into a small rectangle, and slipped into a special spot between her driver's license and, appropriately enough, her Discover card. Across its front, bold red ink and loopy handwriting fashioned the heading: My Life List.

SEASON OF SISTERS is set in my old stomping grounds of North Texas. It was so much fun hearing Texas accents and visiting familiar towns in the Dallas/Fort Worth area throughout this book. But what I enjoyed most was reading about the friendship between three women -- one young, one middle-aged, and one a senior citizen. Their unlikely bond makes for a lively story, full of love, laughter, and wisdom.

  1. This one sounds wonderful! I love stories about women of all ages interacting.

    As for your comment on my blog, it may have gone in the spam folder...I'll check.

    I don't know why this happens on WP, but I've stopped visiting some blogs because my comments never

    I always check for spam, though.

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  2. at least you get to see your WP, mine disappeared last night after I changed the theme..I followed you Gillion and sent you the link to my book. Thanks, Lori

  3. "dreams tucked inside her wallet"-nice phrasing. I wonder what those 32 items in her life list are! Thanks for stopping by my blog.
