This is my first time participating in FRIDAY 56. I found this on Author, Renee Vincent's blog, Past The Print, and have followed for awhile, now I am going to participate. I think it only fair that I dedicate this FRIDAY 56 to her.
Rules:* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Post any sentence from that page (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions on your blog. (If you do not have your own blog) post it in the comments section of this blog.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

‘Tis like nothing you have ever seen. Come with me. Let me take you on the sea and show you what true freedom is.”
