Having finally gotten completely ready for dinner, she knew she had about fifteen minutes to enjoy her book next to the fire. She walked over to her reading chair and picked up the green leather book from the side table. Sitting down, she opened the book to the dedication page, and a satisfying cracking sound as the cover gave way.
“To those of you that have adventure in your heart and love in your eyes, I dedicate this to you.”
She turned the page and settled in.
