First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros - Never Coming Back; Alison McGhee


Every Tuesday I host First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros sharing the first paragraph, maybe two, of a book that I'm reading or plan to read soon. 
Never Coming Back; Alison McGhee
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt - 2017

"Now that my mother was disappearing, I wondered when it began to happen.  A few months before her neighbor called to tell me something was wrong, or maybe years ago, when I was in my nomadic twenties and home only once or twice a year?  Or did something inside her change in a single moment? Quit working? Decide enough was enough?

Hard to say. Hard to know."

Does this intro make you curious for more?

Please feel free to join in each Tuesday with your own "First Chapter, First Paragraph Intro" by linking your post from the book you are reading below.
