First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros - Sea Wife; Amity Gage



Thanks to Yvonne at Socrates’ Book Reviews for taking over FCFPTI.

 Sea Wife; Amity Gage
A. Knopf - 2020

"Where does a mistake begin? Lately I've found this simple question difficult. Impossible, actually.  A mistake has roots in both time and space--a person's reasoning and her whereabouts. Somewhere in the intersection of those two dimensions is the precisely bounded mistake--in nautical terms, its coordinates."

I haven't been able to focus on much reading lately but, I started this one last night and I'm enjoying it so far.  Isn't the cover beautiful? What do you think about the intro?

  8. I like both the cover and the excerpt you shared here, and I'd keep reading this one.

    Like you, I'm finding it difficult to concentrate on my reading right now, being more compelled to listen to all the apocalyptic new on television instead. All this reading time, and I can't read? Never expected that to happen.

  9. That is the best cover I think I've ever seen! I'd keep reading just because of it!
