Friday 56

The Friday 56 is a bookish meme sponsored by Freda's Voice. It's really easy to participate.

*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56.
*Find any sentence that grabs you.
*Post it.
*Link it up at Freda's site.

Here's mine from The Lost Garden by Helen Humphreys:

What I find in that desk drawer, unharmed by creatures or weather, is the head gardener's ledger. I take the book outside and sit on a bench in the sun, against the warmth of the brick wall, the gardener's journal open on my knees.

I've just started this book, so I haven't made it to page 56 yet. I'm wondering if the ledger is going to tell her about the "lost garden"?
