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.

* 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.

Book: RAELIKSEN by Renee Vincent

Dægan touched his cheek where the sting of her hand still tingled. “Conceivably, that was ill. Forgive me. But I still believe she wanted something more than just a passing 
moment at the water’s edge. And I know there is a large part of you, no matter how much you deny it, that longs for the same. I saw it in your eyes. And I can give you that. I want to give you that. If you like the river as much as you say you do, then you will love the sea. You will love seeing your homeland from the distant bows of a ship where the meadow’s flowery arms wave in polite parting and the hills stand up to bid you farewell.
‘Tis like nothing you have ever seen. Come with me. Let me take you on the sea and show you what true freedom is.”

Heart of Romance would like to credit Freda's Voice for starting FRIDAY 56.
