March Last Sentence Thread

My first last sentence for March is a cheat - I'm actually DNFing a book, and skipped ahead to the epilogue. I'd been struggling to get into this book, and yesterday I started another book, and now I really have no desire to go back to the first book, so I'm giving up on it.

The gleam was mirrored, just for a moment, in the upstairs window of the Dower House.
