Witches of East End (The Beauchamp Family) by Melissa De La Cruz
"North Hampton did not exist on any map, which made locating the small, insular community on the very edge of the Atlantic coast something of a conundrum to outsiders, who were known to wander in by chance only to find it impossible to return; so so that the place, with it's remarkably empty silver-sand beaches, rolling green fields, and imposing, rambling farm houses, became more of a half-remembered dream than a memory." Prologue - The Town At The Edge of Nowhere
My Thoughts: Now if you are like me reading over this first line doesn't really grab you. It is when I get farther into the characters that you start to like this book. This a nice description and all but just doesn't help me get interested in that book. The prologue and chapter titles as grab me as well.
