Every Tuesday, I'll be posting the opening paragraph (maybe two) of a book I decided to read based on the opening paragraph (s). Feel free to grab the banner and play along. For today's First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intro, I'm featuring an intro to a book by a new to me author. Has anyone read this one?
Cascade; Maryanne O'Hara
2012 - Viking
AND SOMETHING BECOMES SOMETHING ELSE
"During his final days, William Hart was haunted by drowning dreams. Every day at the sound of his shouts, Dez came awake herself, always briefly startled to find a husband --Asa --sleeping beside her. She would dash across the hall, fearing another heart attack, but then her father would be lying quietly, gazing at the plaster ceiling. Probably half the town was having drowning dreams, she'd say, reminding him that the reservoir was an old rumor and ticking off good reasons why it would never happen. The state had looked to --Cascade before. If it was too expensive to build six years ago, then surely, in these hard times, nothing would come of it."
