Book Beginnings on Friday

Thank you to Rose City Reader for giving me the idea for this meme. On Rose City Reader you will find 'Opening Sentences of the Day' so please have a look at this wonderful blog for further opportunities to share opening sentences.
Lilian's Story by Kate Grenville
"It was a wild night in the year of Federation that the birth took place."
I love it. It says a lot about the book. The wild night seems to suggest that the birth is portentous. Not only that, it seems to suggest that whoever has just been born has been marked for a somehow unique life.
I am really enjoying this book which I am pleased about, particularly as I had a few problems with the last Grenville book I read.
Anyway, over to you. Post a link to your Book Beginnings on Friday post in the Mr Linky below.
