Friday 56, #14

It’s time for  Friday 56!  It’s a book meme hosted by Freda at Freda’s Voice. Be sure to visit her blog if you would like to participate!

From Freda’s Voice The Rules:
*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader
(If you have to improvise, that’s ok.)
*Find any sentence, (or few, just don’t spoil it)
*Post it.
*Add your (url) post in the Linky on Friday 56. Add the post url, not your blog url.
*It’s that simple!

Here’s my contribution:

The Daughters: A Novel

When you’re young and in love is new, you map the geography of a person’s body inch by inch. You want to know them so well you could make another version of them, one wrought out of gold and filled with light. And  so when you touch your lover, you’re also molding and reshaping their avatar. This rib slightly lower down. The birthmark higher, above the hip. Later, you don’t look so hard.

This book came in a subscription book box, and I hadn’t heard of the book or the author until it showed up in the mail. Have you read this book? What do you think of it based on the excerpt?  Would you read The Daughters?  Let me know in the comments!
