For today's First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intro, I'm featuring a book I plan to begin in a few days. I've read a few of this author's earlier books and liked them.
"I didn't set out to be an old maid. When I was in my early twenties there was, according to my mother, "still hope for me." But when I got into my late twenties the hope all but left Mother's eyes. 'Lord have mercy Ivorie,' she would say. 'What is going to happen to you when your pop and I leave this earth?' I was, in her opinion, doomed to a bed-of-nails existence without a man."
Would you keep reading or take a pass?
