#BookBeginnings & #Friday56 (& a Ramble) -- Thoreau on Wolf Hill

It's Friday again so it's time for Friday56 at Freda's Voice & Book Beginnings at Rose City Reader!

The Book Beginnings rules are to share the first few sentences & initial thoughts while the Friday56 is to share a blurb from the 56th page or 56% mark.

This week we're looking at B. B. Oak's Thoreau on Wolf Hill:

The Book Beginnings blurb was "written in" Adam's journal while the Friday 56 appears in Julia's notebook. I love how each chapter is set up as being written by one or the other! 

Adam's bit gave me a chuckle over having a dram of whiskey before breakfast ... until I about how this is 19th century New England and that there must have been quite a stressful reason for the small town doctor. Julia's I love because it really highlights Thoreau's role in the series thus far.

Since I finished the book while waiting for my bus in to work tonight, I've already thrown a small reviewish ramble up on GoodReads. I'm far too lazy right now to re-type it all, but that's what the snipping tool is for, right? 


  1. This sounds like an interesting read and I like how the ending was a surprise and different from what you expected. I'll have to look for this one.

  2. This sounds like a fun series. A surprise ending is a good recommendation. Enjoy the weekend.

  3. Sounds like a fascinating series. It's fun when authors include historical figures in their stories, and unexpected endings are almost always a joy. I'll look for this series.
    My Friday post features The Collected Stories of Eudora Welty.

  4. Great post! I really like your Friday 56, it's really sweet! It's true though isn't it? Wisdom is a lot better than advice :)
    Have a great day,

  5. I'll have to try ou this series. Sounds funny.
