Friday Focus: The Friday 56 & Book Beginnings #76

It's Friday . . . time to share excerpts book excerpts with:
  • Book Beginnings on Fridays hosted by Rose City Reader, where bloggers share the first sentence or more of a current read, as well as initial thoughts about the sentence(s), impressions of the book, or anything else that the opening inspires.  
  • The Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice, where you grab a book and turn to page 56 (or 56% of an ebook), find one or more interesting sentences (no spoilers), and post them.
Today I'm featuring:
 The Witch of Painted Sorrows (The Daughters of La Lune #1) 

BeginningChapter 1   Paris, France   April 1894
I did not cause the madness, the deaths, or the rest of the tragedies any more than I painted the paintings.  I had help, her help.  Or perhaps I should say she forced her help on me. 
Page 56 "I was simply overwrought, as my grandmother had been telling me since I'd arrived in Paris.  And for good reason."

New York Times bestselling novelist M.J. Rose is a meticulous researcher and masterful author of historic fiction, as anyone who has read her Recarnationist series can attest to.  The Witch of Painted Sorrows is the first in a new series entitled Daughters of La Lune.

Which book are you reading now or about to start?
