First Chapter

This week I’m featuring the January selection for the Modern Mrs. Darcy book club. Again, WAY outside of my normal reading zone, but I’m definitely looking forward to digging into this one!

The memorial service for Beth, Harry Crane’s wife of fourteen years, was held in the Leiper Friends Meeting House in Waverly, just outside Philadelphia. The large, unadorned room was packed with relatives, friends, neighbors and coworkers. A woman’s whisper rose from their midst. “Oh, look at him. Poor Harry.” Grief-haunted and pale in his rumpled blue suit, Harry sat in the front row propped between his imposing older brother, Wolf, and Beth’s father, Stan.

Like I said above, this book is way outside my normal reading. But that intro works for me… it definitely makes me want to know how Beth died. I hope you come back in a few weeks when I get my review posted 🙂
