Sunday Scramble

I'm Mary O'Malley. I know it's been a long time since I've blogged, so I figured I'd better introduce myself again. I've decided to start something new. You see, I'm a language buff and I have been since I was a kid.

I loved Sunday mornings. Dad would read the funnies and I'd work out the puzzles. Crossword puzzles, word scrambles, find-the-word. Anything that had to do with letters, I snagged it.

So I thought it would be fun to start my own Sunday Scramble. Every Sunday I'm going to post a quote from one of our books. Some of the words will be missing. I'll give you the letters that spell the words and all you need to do is unscramble them and fill in the blanks. I'll give a scrambled version of each word below, but the words won't be in the same order they appear in the quote.

Sound easy?  I hope it won't be too easy.  I always liked a challenge. But remember, I'm knew at this puzzle creation. I'm more a puzzle solver in the books. So make sure to let me know if it's too easy or too hard.

Oh, the best part is...the first person who solves the puzzle gets an ebook copy of the book the quote is from. Ready?

This week's quote is from The Reunion.
