The Fairy Godmother (Five Hundred Kingdoms)
"This is not the way to spend  a beautiful spring morning! Elena Klovis thought, as she peered aroudn the pile of bandboxes in her arms. They were full of hats, so they weren't particularly heavy--unlike most of her stepmother's luggage--but they were very awkward to carry.  There was a lark serenading the morning somewhere overhead, and Elena wished with all her heart she was him and not herself." The Fairy Godmother (Five Hundred Kingdoms) by Mercedes Lackey

I like fairy godmothers and hats. I like this beginning. I would like to read this one. Need to read more fantasy.

This sounds great - I love hats! I haven't read any of Mercedes Lackey books but this beginning has really captured me.

Oh, that awful stepmother and her heavy luggage. :) This is a fun beginning, for a book I've not seen before.

Thanks for participating in Book Beginnings!
