The Friday 56 is a weekly meme hosted over at Freda’s Voice. The rules are simple and go something like this.
1. Grab a book, any book.
2. Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader (If you have to improvise, that’s ok.)
3. Find any sentence (or a few, just don’t spoil it)
4. Post it.
5. Add the post URL, not your blog URL, to the Linky.
6. Tweet it #Friday56 (not an official Freda’s Voice rule)
Chef barks a laugh. She got an arm around Bessie, another local who remind me of the big-bone woman from the song. Her ruby-painted fingernails trace lazy lines through the part in Chef’s short-trimmed hair and the two lean into each other in the way of lovers rediscovering their familiarity. The sight send my own eyes wandering, until they land on the finest thing in the room.
Ring Shout, pg. 57
Summary: In 1915, The Birth of a Nation cast a spell across America, swelling the Klan’s ranks and drinking deep from the darkest thoughts of white folk. All across the nation they ride, spreading fear and violence among the vulnerable. They plan to bring Hell to Earth. But even Ku Kluxes can die.
Maryse and fellow resistance fighters hunt their hunters and send the Klan’s demons straight to hell.
Can Maryse stop the Klan before it ends the world?
