Book Beginnings: Sleigh Bells in the Snow by Sarah Morgan

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.

For Friday 56, Freda's Voice asks you to turn to Page 56 in your book or 56% on your e-reader and pick a sentence.


Sleigh Bells in the Snow by Sarah Morgan cover
Kayla Green cranked up the volume on her favourite playlist and blocked out the sound of festive music and laughter wafting under her closed office door. 

It's no secret that Sleigh Bells in the Snow is one of my all time favourite festive books. I first read it about seven years ago, and I come back to it often.

This is such a familiar story that I love so dearly, and I totally understand where Kayla is coming from. I used to be the same when I first read this book, but now I love Christmas.

The landscape was dotted with red barns and white-steepled country churches and the late-afternoon sun sent a wash of light over breathtakingly beautiful forests turned white by snow.

This is from page 56 in my finished paperback copy.

This is where we start to properly see the magic of Snow Crystal, and I love it. I want to go there so badly, even if it is fictional.
