First Chapter ~ First Paragraph Tuesday Intros


For today's First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, here's and into from a book I've been thinking about reading. 

Feel free to join in by posting the opening paragraph (sometimes maybe a few ) of a book you decided to read based on the opening paragraph (s). Grab the banner and play along.


"The girl came at the same hour, summer or winter.  Every morning, I heard her approach.  Plastic slippers, the clink of steel on stone.  And the her footsteps, receding.   That morning she was earlier.  The whistling thrushes had barely cleared their throats, and the rifle range across the valley had not yet sounded its bugles.  And, unlike every other day, I did not hear her leave after she had set down my daily canister of milk."

Would you keep reading? I'm in love with the cover, but haven't actually started reading this one yet.

  12. That first paragraph drew me in. It raised lots of questions that I know I'll have to keep reading to find the answers. Good one, Diane.
