The Friday 56 is hosted by Freda over at Freda's Voice. The rules are simple:
*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56.
*Find any sentence that grabs you. (I cheat sometimes and put a little more than a sentence!)
*Add your post URL to the Link.
Today's Friday 56 comes from a great book that I read a couple of years ago called 'The Poisonwood Bible' By Barbara Kingsolver. It was one of those books that sat on my TBR pile for ages and ages, but then once I finally read it I couldn't put it down and could not believe that I had let such a wonderful book sit on that pile for so long! lol :)
"The River Kwilu is not like the River Jordan, chilly and wide. It is a lazy, rolling river as warm as bathwater, where the crocodiles are said to roll around like logs. No milk and honey on the other side, either, but just more stinking jungle laying low in the haze, as far, far away as the memory of picnics in Georgia." (p.56)
