The Friday 56 is a weekly meme hosted by Freda’s Voice. The aim is to share a few sentences of a book (whether it’s the one your’re currently reading or not) so other people might be enticed to pick it up.
Here’s the rules:
– Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader
– Find any sentence, (or few, just don’t spoil it)
– Post it.
– Add the url of your post to the Linky on Freda’s most recent post.
Ropes were produced and the ends snaked over the strong beam of the gallows arm; sturdy nooses were looped around the necks of the three Cymry – one old, one young, and one in his prime – whose only real crime under heaven was having been captured by Normans. As the nooses were being tightened, there came a shout from the crowd. “Wait! Stop the execution!”
That was from 56% mark on my kindle book of Scarlet by Stephen R. Lawhead.
