Pick up the nearest book

Here's one I haven't seen before and thought it was interesting. Play along!

1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Open to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.

"By the fourth day the waves calmed, and when my death wish had passed, I finally stagged up on deck. Again, I had to go up flights of stairs and meander around mazelike corridors before I found the Warners in the second-class lounge.

The children yelled with delight to see me again."

Ties that Bind, Ties that Break --Lensey Namioka

It's a book I haven't read since high school, but I had just placed it on my bookshelf while unpacking a couple hours ago. It's a story about Chinese foot binding practices.
