After having a delicious lunch accompanied by good company, I returned to my home to a surprising package. “A package for me? I didn’t order anything” I thought. The curiosity killed me I then pursue to open an interesting, large envelope.
As I slowly opened the yellowish package, my heart was pounding noticing the blue-like spine of a book. I continued opening the package when I saw with my own eyes the cover of the International Bestseller “The Time In Between”. The title says everything. I became excited and couldn’t wait to begin reading it.
