I’m joining Rose City Reader as she encourages fellow bloggers to share the beginnings of a book we are reading.
I’m reading a historical fiction book about a man who drives among the small towns of northern Texas. He reads the news to people who do not have major newspapers and who appreciate being able to keep up with what’s going on. Here is the beginning of the book:
Captain Kidd laid out the Boston Morning Journal on the lectern and began to read from the article on the Fifteenth Amendment. He had been born in 1798 and the third war of his lifetime had ended five years ago and he hoped never to see another but now the news of the world aged him more than time itself.
