A Silken Thread

Laurel swung her feet from the armrest of the sofa to the floor and sat up. The book she’d been reading slid from her lap and landed with a soft thud on the faded square of carpet that formed an island in the middle of the scuffed hardwood floor. Ordinarily, retrieving a book — a precious thing to both her and Mama — would take precedence over all else, but the mutter of voices from the porch and the click of a key in the front door stole her attention. Which of her siblings had chosen to disturb Mama’s afternoon nap?
I like Laurel already! A novel with a book enthusiast is one of my favorite types of novels.
I am not familiar with Kim Vogel Sawyer’s novels, but I am highly anticipating reading this story. It sounds really excellent.
