4.)Post it.

5.)Add your URL post in the link on Freda’s most recent Friday 56 post!

The book I chose is Love is Never Past Tense, by Author Janna Yeshanova!


A whirlwind romance on a romantic Black Sea beach turns into a quick marriage for Serge and Janna, only to have family, fate and foolishness tear them apart. As the cold war grinds to a halt, the politics of late Soviet Russia separates the lovers on different continents. Never quite coming together, never quite letting go, their lives overlap and entwine over the years…

I haven’t read Love Is Never Past Tense, by Janna Yeshanova, yet. so I hope participating in this meme doesn’t spoil it for me! But, here goes nothing! 🙂

The old man swung and knocked the bottle on the boards of the boat. It shattered, but in his hand remained the neck with sharp edges. He dove under and groped for the rope which was tied to the stone, and began to cut it. The rope, it seemed, was not impressed. In fury, the old man began to gnash the glass on the stone, assuming that he was sawing the rope. But when he again tried to find a cut, he found nothing. The top boards on the boat were barely 10 centimeters above the water. Very soon it would be completely filled with water—and then everything that was still holding on the surface would slowly and uncontrollably fall into the abyss. The old man became terrified again. He was overcome with a nervous shivering. But he managed to take himself in hand and began to repeat one calming phrase: “Don’t panic! Only don’t panic …”

–Janna Yeshanova. Love Is Never Past Tense… (Kindle Locations 2207-2213).

Well okay! Now I am interested! I wonder what led up to this point, and what will happen next? And if YOU are interested in participating in this meme, please join us!
