First Chapter ~ First Paragraph Tuesday Intros ~ Claire of the Sea Light; Edwidge Danticat
Every Tuesday I host First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros,
where I share the first paragraph or (a few) of a book I am reading or
thinking about reading soon. Care to join us? I haven't begun this book
yet, but, I hope to within a few days.
"The morning Claire Limye Lanme Faustin turned seven, a freak wave, measuring between ten and twelve feet high, was seen in the ocean outside of Ville Rose. Claire's father. Nozias, a fisherman, was one of the many who saw it in the distance as he walked toward the sloop. He first heard a low rumbling, like that of distant thunder, then saw a wall of water rise from the depths of the ocean, a giant blue-green tongue, trying, it seemed, to lick a pink sky."
