The book:

The Madonnas of Leningrad by Debra Dean

The Sentences:

They have invited guests to share the spoils Viktor has brought back from the front. Sergei Pavlovich and his sister Liliia have contributed a handful of dried apricots that Nadezhda boiled down to make a glaze for her shortbread. Anya has brought an onion, which they slice info wafers.

i've just started reading the book but i already find it appealing. it's a story about love, imagination and preservation of memories...something i'd typically be drawn to. the book has an old feel to it. the edges of the pages seemed like they were gently torn by hand, making it look like an old, handmade journal from the 1940s.
i'm tagging fellow booklovers Pat & Weng.
