Welcome to First Chapter/Intros, now hosted by Yvonne @ Socrates Book Reviews. Each week readers post the first paragraph (or 2) of a book they are reading or that they plan to read soon.
The Nightingale; Kristin Hannah
St. Martin's Griffin - 2015
April 9, 1995
The Oregon Coast
"If I have learned anything in this long life of mine, it is this: In love we find out who we want to be; in war we find out who we are. Today's young people want to know everything about everyone. They think talking about a problem will solve it. I come from a quieter generation. We understand the value of forgetting, the lure of reinvention."
(I'm late reading this one, it seems everyone has read it and enjoyed it. It's 596 pp. but so far I'm happy and I think the writing is beautiful.)
Have you read this one? What do you think of the intro?
