The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): Iron Widow (Iron Widow #1) by Xiran-Jay Zhao


On Friday's I take part in two weekly link ups - The Friday 56, hosted by Freda's Voice, and Book Beginnings, hosted by Rose City Reader.  For The Friday 56, you choose a book, a book you have just finished, a book you are about to start, your current read, and share a line or a few lines that grab you (but don't spoil anything) from page 56 or 56% of the way through the ebook. Post it and share your post's url on Freda's most recent Friday 56 post. As for Book Beginnings, you share the first sentence or so and your initial thoughts, impressions, or whatever else it inspires, and then link up your post's url with Rose City Reader. 
Happy Friday everyone! This week I'm spotlighting one of my Pride Month 2022 booksIron Widow (Iron Widow #1) by Xiran-Jay Zhao.  I've already finished this one and I can't recommend it enough!


The Hunduns were coming.


If I've assumed wrong, I'd be dooming not only myself and my family, for no reason, but this hope of taking back the Zhou province.

Have you read this book?  As always, thanks for visiting and perhaps even commenting down below!
