The Friday 56 is hosted by Freda’s Voice. The rules are simple – turn to page 56 in your current read (or 56% in your e-reader) and post a few non-spoilery sentences.
Today’s quote is from The Tropic of Serpents, the second book of The Memoirs of Lady Trent. I’ll be doing a full series review shortly!
“I have not kidnapped her, my lord,” I said, covering up my nervousness with irritation. In his distress, he had not yet thought to ask me outright whether I had seen his daughter. If he did, I would have to make up my mind whether to lie, and a sleepless night of pondering that very question had failed to supply me with an answer.
I should perhaps mention that the daughter in question is an adult woman! (As is the person speaking in this quote.) So far this is an excellent series, I’m eager to see how it all turns out.
