    Here's my Friday Meme Post

  4. I like the sounds of this book, and the five question friday meme caught my interest too. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Sounds like a conversation needs to be had.

  6. I agree with Freda. Some things just need to be said. Thanks for stopping by.

  7. Those nine words meant so much for a beginning to a book. Did he live? Did he get shot or hurt? What was the situation? I'm left with so many questions. It sounds like an action-packed book.

    Have a great hot holiday, Sidne!

  8. Wow Against the Gates of Hell really starts off with a bang!

    I cream all the away.
