Like so many people this past year, I’ve spent a lot of time finding new things I can do from home. From tracking down copies of books I’ve always wanted to read to watching as many musicals as possible, I’ve tried to enjoy the time I can. One of my biggest projects has been crafting—knitting, crocheting, felt-making. If I had a large enough space, I’d probably be quilting right now, too. Funnily enough, I’ve noticed this new interest has slowly seeped into my reading. So for this week’s First Line Friday, I’m sharing an opening from one of my recent reads that happens to use a crafting backdrop.
The day had already been the sort I wanted to drown in a cold beer or a bubble bath. Preferably both. And that was before I heard Gram’s voice, loud and clear as always, coming from my “missed messages.”
“Angel, it’s time to come home. They’ve found your mama.”
No one in Arizona called me “Angel.”
