The Friday 56, Under the Western Acacia

Rules:
* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section of Storytime With Tonya and Friends.
*Post a link along with your post back to Storytime With Tonya and Friends.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

The book this week is Ramses: Under the Western Acacia by Christian Jacq. It's the fifth and final book in the Ramses series. I liked the series but it isn't what I would call historically accurate. It has a lot of fantasy to it. And some people might not like the fact that Moses does not come off well. But it is a story, not history, so....

The sentence:

In the fortresses of his home country, he had learned to give the opposite sex what they deserved.

Good for him, and apparently her too.
