This week I'm starting a book by one of our fellow bloggers. Laurel-Rain Snow. The book is Interior Designs. Here's the intro:
When I woke up, my thoughts sifted through my mind slowly, like pieces of a dream. I could feel the sun through the spaces in the blinds, and I gradually saw my surroundings -- my pink and white floral Laura Ashley spread, the matching shams, and other assorted pillows -- and that normally blissful feeling started to descend. And then something jarred me fully awake. I sat up slowly, and the heavy cloak of despair fell down around my shoulders. My now-familiar life began to take shape.I look forward to reading Laurel's novel.
When had my world morphed into this despair that seemed to follow me into every waking moment? Why did my sleep bring my only peace these days?
