the friday 56

 The Friday 56

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. 

 I'm reading The Long Call.  Ok, I thought I would start this last Friday but I read two other books instead--so this week I'm actually going to start this one.

From page 59:

Maurice blinked at that.  He'd heard that Jonathan had married a man, but he wouldn't have thought he'd be the sort to take up with a policeman.  He was too much of a free spirit.  Then he thought times had changed, and all that mattered now was that Lucy would be well looked after.

"There's one other thing."

"Yes?" Jonathan had taken his phone out of his pocket to ring the police, but he set it on the table and gave Maurice his full attention.  Maurice went on: "Lucy thought she'd seen the man before.  I'd have recognized him if he'd been knocking around the village, so I think the Woodyard is the only other place she could have met him."

Jonathan nodded as if this was something he'd already suspected.

That quote is very confusing. Guess one has to read the other 59 pages first. Ha! I am highlighting a book by a favorite author, whom I'm sure you like his works, too
