The Beginning Of A Book: The Almost Sisters

I’m joining Rose City Reader as she encourages fellow bloggers to share the beginnings of a book we are reading.

I’m a fan of the novels of Joselyn Jackson and will agree to read her latest book without knowing  a thing about it. Its okay because I know there is always a wonderful cast of characters with drama, chaos and Southern charm in every book. Here how the story begins:

“My son, Digby, began at exactly 3:02 in the morning on the first Friday in June. I don’t mean his conception or his birth. I mean the moment he began for me, which happened between those two large events.”

The main character returns home a grandmother with dementia and secrets in the attic and a step-sister with big marital problems. And, she’s come home to share her own secret – she’s about to become a single mom. Yes, Drama with a capital D. Excellent summer reading.
