I love reading them, so now I’m joining the #SundaySentence party started by David Abrams over at the Quivering Pen and on Twitter. It’s not a review. It’s not a story. It’s just one sentence I read this week, presented “out of context and without commentary.”

This week’s Sunday Sentences (could not pick just one) are from Jason Brown’s collection, Why The Devil Chose New England For His Work. These are from the last paragraph in his story, “The Lake.”

“He turned around and looked up, as if at a mountain peak or a descending plane, but there was nothing above except for a line of high white clouds pulling up over the valley like a cold sheet.”

Elizabeth Marro

Elizabeth Marro is the author of the novel, Casualties, the story of a defense executive who loses her son just when she thought he was safely home from war. Now, she must face the painful truth about her past, her choices, the war, and her son.
