Book Beginnings #17

For Book Beginnings, Rose City Reader invites us to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.


The red haired girl was the bravest.

Another book that gives nothing away with the first paragraph! Perhaps it's a theme with historical fiction? I am just starting this, but when I heard about it I jumped at the chance to read it. It sounds so exciting. And the cover is beautiful (and I'm a magpie who likes pretty things)

From the blurb, it sounds like it's going to be a bit of an Irish Mulan-type story that escalates into espionage, with a dash of forbidden love and lots and lots of danger. It sounds so exciting!
