‘North Of Supposed To Be’ by Marcia Ferguson

The Looking Glass 1997

Think of a puppy. A puppy with melting eyes and velvety ears, the shape of a cracker. A bouncy Boston terrier puppy, crazily chasing a ball.

Moments ticked by as the dog reverie failed to calm Bronwyn’s racing heart.

A sunset over the ocean. No, maybe seagulls gliding on the wind.

Bronwyn breathed a choppy sigh. Her nerves were getting the best of her. Photographing celebrities was effortless, but the Prime Minister of Israel … that would be something else. Gazing intently at her reflection, Bronwyn’s green eyes held a glint of panic; what she needed was vibrant confidence staring back. Waiting was torturous, and the hotel ladies room was like a chilly holding cell.

This book is quite a chunkster at almost 6oo pages, so the first few lines really do need to grab my attention and draw me in.

I think that there are just enough unanswered questions in this opening excerpt to have hooked me into needing to know more!

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.
