Friday Books - The Clockmaker's Daughter

Welcome to BookBeginnings and Friday56 - where we share books on Fridays. It's a great way to start the weekend.

Book Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader.




 Here's the beginning of the book I'm featuring today.



Such beautiful writing from one of my favourite authors, on the very first page.



At Freda's Voice, you'll find the Friday56, where the excerpt comes from page 56 or 56% in your Kindle.

Here's page 56 of .The Clockmaker's Daughter by Kate Morton.



 I'm not sure nostalgia's ever in vogue, but I like the notion. Isn't this the way prettier cover?

I have done a review, for those of you who're interested to read further.

What are you reading this weekend? I'd love to visit your blog and check it out.

I haven't heard of this one before, but it sounds interesting. I'm going to add it to my TBR list. Thanks for mentioning it! :-)

Ooh I can’t wait to read Crawdads - I’m waiting on a book club copy.

Sounds like a good book. I like the writing in the beginning and 56. I'm featuring The Military Wife by Laura Trentham from my review stack this week. Happy reading!

The second cover is very pretty.

I didn't get a good sense of the voice or tone of the book, so I went to your review and realized that might be because they are separate characters. Having a big cast of characters isn't easy to pull off because, as you say, it is hard to make them memorable enough for the reader to care. Enjoyed your review.

I think I'd enjoy this one too. And the second is lovely.

I tried another of Kate Morton's novels and couldn't get into it. I would like to try something else by her, and this one especially appeals to me. Have a great weekend.

I enjoyed this one. I am saving my copy to pass on to my mother.
