Book Beginnings and the Friday 56 #14

Book Beginnings on Friday and The Friday 56 are weekly memes hosted by Rose City Reader and Freda's Voice.

Rules: 

Book Beginnings: Share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. 

The Friday 56: Grab a book, turn to page 56 or 56% in you eReader. Find any sentence (not spoilery) and reflect on it if you want.
 
 
The book I'm currently reading is:

(The Veil and the Crown #1)
by Zia Wesley


Synopsis: 
 
The legend of Aimée Dubucq de Rivery, has survived on three continents for more than two hundred years. The Stolen Girl tells the first part of her extraordinary story, her adolescence on the Caribbean island of Martinique, and her voyage to Paris where her hopes of finding a husband are shattered. Resigned to live as an old maid at the ripe age of eighteen, she decides to become a nun and sets sail to visit her relatives on Martinique one last time. On the journey, she meets and falls in love with a dashing young Scotsman. But fate had other plans for Aimée, ones that were foretold by an African Obeah woman when she was fourteen years old.


 
Book Beginning:
 
"Aimée was fairly certain she would burn in hell for the sin she was about to commit."
 
Deeply Catholic, this girl is.


The Friday 56:

"Overcome with deep sadness, she sat up slowly and ran her fingers over the chains of gold and rubies wound around her ankles. They are so beautiful. Are these jewels to take the place of true love?"

That's a sad thought. Hopefully true love is not entirely lost for her.


Don't forget to leave your Friday post links in a comment below! Happy reading!
