This is the first paragraph from my new novel The House of Balestrom. I hope you enjoy it!!!!
"The House of Balestrom stood intimidating above the tree lines. Its beautiful red roof and Victorian arches reached up to the sky like hands. The day was clear and bright as the lake that separated land and island quietly moved around the ferry that crossed it. Sara leaned on the banister as she watched the island get slowly closer. She sighed because the ride was almost over and she wanted to continue to take in the sight of the house. David nudged her with his shoulder and pointed in the direction of the island as more of the house came into view. Both of them were excited to be there, though the circumstances of their journey to The House of Balestrom was a sad one."
