Beginning ~ in the archives

So Far Away ~ by Meg Mitchell Moore, 2012, fiction (Massachusetts), 10/10
It was a Friday when the girl came into the Archives for the first time, the first Friday after they'd changed the clocks.  Spring ahead, fall back:  Kathleen had once learned some rhyme about that when she was a schoolchild, but she no longer remembered it.  It had been some time since she's been a schoolchild.

Hard to tell what this is about from the opening, but she is in the archives for a reason and I wonder what it is. I'll add this to my "to buy" list since you said in your comment that you couldn't put it down

Nice beginning. The archives and stacks are a good place for solitude in a library...at least I'm assuming the Archives is in a library.

I'm curious to know more...sounds like one I'd enjoy.

I remember learning that rhyme as well, but I always get it mixed up. I don't see why you couldn't spring back or fall forward, anyway.

Here's my Book Beginning.

That's a great beginning.
And I know a rule for the time setting: Always towards the summer. :-)

Great cover! And anything about archives makes me want to read it!

Rayme Waters – the author of my Book Beginnings book – guest posted on Rose City Reader today, explaining how the heroines of 19th Century literature inspired her debut novel, The Angels' Share.

It will give you a much different idea about the book than the opening sentence.

Thanks for participating in Book Beginnings!
