Every Tuesday, Diane at Bibliophile by the sea posts the opening paragraph (maybe two) of a book she decided to read based on the opening paragraph (s). Feel free to grab the banner and play along. I like this meme and decided to play along with her this week.

"Our mother was a witch, too, but she hid it better. I miss her.
Not a single day goes by that I don't wish for her guidance. Especially about my sisters.
Tess runs ahead of me, heading for the rose garden-our sanctuary, our one safe place. Her slippers slide on the cobblestones, the hood of her gray cloak falling to reveal blonde curls. I glance back at the house. It's against the Brothers' strictures for girls to go out of doors uncloaked, and running isn't considered ladylike. But we're concealed from the house by tall hedges. Tess is safe. For now."
I don't know about you but I'm hooked! And you?
