Welcome to First Chapter/Intros, now hosted by Socrates Book Reviews. Thanks to Yvonne for taking over FCFPTI. Each week readers post the first paragraph (sometimes 2) of a book they are reading or that they plan to read soon
The Sun Down Motel; Simone St. James

"The night it all ended, Vivian was alone.
That was fine with her. She preferred it. It was something she'd discovered, working the night shift at this place in the middle of nowhere: Being with people was easy, being alone was hard. Especially being alone in the dark. The person who could truly be alone, in the company of no one but oneself and one's own thoughts--that person was stronger than anyone else. More ready. More prepared."
What do you think, read more or pass? This one's been on my radar for a bit - hope to begin it this week.
