The Friday 56 #4

The Friday 56 is a weekly blog meme hosted by Freda's Voice. The rules are simple:

*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56, or 56% in your eReader.
*Find any sentence (or a few, just don't spoil it) that grab you.
*Post it.
*Add your (url) post here in Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url.

It's that simple!

He was sitting in the Morris chair, reading a book. His face broke into a smile of pleasure when she entered. Taking in her expression, it faded. "What's happened, Dorothea?"
This quote is taken from an ARC, therefore it and its location may be subject to change in the final version.

About The Small Fortune of Dorothea Q by Sharon Maas:

"When she ran away from her childhood home in Guyana, Rika swore that she would never return. Cut off from her family, she has fought hard to make a life for herself and her daughter, Inky, in London. Now, over thirty years later, Rika's cantankerous, wheelchair-bound mother, Dorothea, arrives in London. But as old wounds re-open, Dorothea and Rika are further apart than ever. 

Inky soon learns that her grandmother is sitting on a small fortune. As she uncovers the secrets of the past one by one, she unravels the tragedy that tore her mother and grandmother apart. But nothing can prepare her or Rika for Dorothea's final, unexpected revelation."
