First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros - The Au Pair; Emma Rous

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

The Au Pair; Emma Rous
Berkley - 2019



August 2017

"WE HAVE NO photographs of our early days. Danny and I. A six month gap yawns in the Mayes family album after we were born.  No first-day-at-school pictures for Edwin, no means of telling which of us two looked more like him at the beginning.  An empty double page marks the overwhelming grief that followed our arrival."

What do you think? Curious enough to read more?
