The Friday 56 (185) & Book Beginnings: Silver In the Wood by Emily Tesh

The Friday 56 is a weekly meme hosted by Freda's Voice where every Friday you pick a book and turn to page 56 or 56%, and select a sentence or a few, as long as it's not a spoiler. For the full rules, visit the the page HERE

Book Beginnings is a weekly meme hosted by Rose City Reader that asks you to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you're reading.

43459657Synopsis from Goodreads...
There is a Wild Man who lives in the deep quiet of Greenhollow, and he listens to the wood. Tobias, tethered to the forest, does not dwell on his past life, but he lives a perfectly unremarkable existence with his cottage, his cat, and his dryads. When Greenhollow Hall acquires a handsome, intensely curious new owner in Henry Silver, everything changes. Old secrets better left buried are dug up, and Tobias is forced to reckon with his troubled past—both the green magic of the woods, and the dark things that rest in its heart.


Beginning: " It was the middle of an autumn downpour when Tobias first met Henry Silver."

56: ""More than that," said Tobias."


Comments: I finally read Silver In the Wood. I liked this story. My 56 comes from page thirty-seven instead (the real page fifty-six is close to the end of the novella). What are you reading this week?
