The Ford Page 99 Test of Rise from the Ashes

Ford Madox Ford, novelist, poet and editor, said, "Open the book to page ninety-nine and read, and the quality of the whole will be revealed to you."

So what do you think about page 99 of Rise from the Ashes?

Here's a short excerpt of the page
"Alyssa felt guilty for her mother's death but she told no one. She'd attended her funeral but she barely remembered what transpired there. She realised then, that she was now alone in the world. There was no body else on the planet directly related to her and that notion scared her. For now, all she had to rely on, was the kindness of strangers; one who had turned into her best friend and the other, the love of her life."
