First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros - The Dearly Beloved; Cara Wall


Each Tuesday, Vicki, from I’d Rather Be At The Beach hosts First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros where readers post the opening paragraph(s) of a book that they are reading or plan to read.


The Dearly Beloved; Cara Wall
Simon & Schuster - 2019

PROLOGUE

"On the day Charles Barrett died, James MacNally closed the door to his study, sat down in his chair, and laid his head on the thick edge of his desk so he could weep.  His wife, Nan, did not knock to be let in, though his rough, heavy sobs hit her like stones. She knew Jame's own death would wring the same sounds from her, if he went first and her adrift in the world, unmoored."

I'm really enjoy this one and so happy that Kathy @ BermudaOnion's Blog raved about it.  What do you think?

  9. I read this one and really enjoyed it! The book is more about friendship than religion for those people worried about it having two ministers in it.
