As a reminder, I'm participating in the A-Z April Blogging Challenge. I am featuring my favorite books or stories and their first and last lines.
H is for:
HARVEST HOME by Thomas Tryon
I really, really, really liked this book. It’s been years since I read it last, but I still remember it to be a thriller and full of surprises.
First Line: “I awakened that morning to birdsong.”
End Line: “The invisible voice continued.”
OH my goodness, I only realized when I typed out the lines, how they relate to each other, but that's all I will say about that. A movie came out in 1978 that was made from HARVEST HOME titled The Dark Secret of Harvest Home with Bette Davis, David Ackroyd, Rosanna Arquette and many others. Great movie! Scary movie!
Before you read it, you need to know that, as Adrian Monk would say, “They had sex affairs.” Yes, there is some sexual and violent content. I'm sure it would be tame by today's standards.
HARVEST HOME is now on my TBR pile to read again--like I need another book on that dang pile.
