Rosa stood on the street, contemplating the stairs of the back alley. At 76, she wasn't sure how much longer that she would be able to use this particular route to access her back door with a bag of groceries. On one hand, it was a short-cut, saving her from walking the rest of the way around the block to the front door, but those damn stairs were taking a toll on her knees.
A moment later, a young girl came running down the steps, hysterically screaming "HELP ME!!!", placing Rosa smack-dab into the middle of danger and drama that she would have never previously believed possible.
Kathy Matthews' first novel of kidnap, intrigue and survival in a small Italian village is a fascinating must read. You won't be disappointed! (131)
Thank you to Ashley Ortiz for her wonderful photo, which really was taken in Italy.
I am participating in Lisa's Book Blurb Friday, from over at Writing in the Buff. It is fun, and you can play too! Pretend that the picture on the top of this post is the cover of a book. On the inside jacket, you have 150 words to entice the reader to buy your book. Lisa gives us a week to think about next week's entry (she's gracious like that). Please CLICK HERE to read what everybody else wrote!
