Welcome to First Chapter/Intros, hosted by Yvonne @ Socrates Book Reviews. Each week readers post the first paragraph (or 2) of a book we are reading or plan to read soon.
February 3, 1791
She would come at daybreak--the woman whose letter I held in my hands, the woman whose name I did not yet know.
I knew neither her age nor where she lived. I did not know her rank in society nor the dar things of which she dreamed when night fell. She could be a vicim or a transgressor. A new wife or a vengeful widow. A nursemaid or a courtesan.
But despite all that I did not know, I understood this: that woman knew exactly who she wanted dead.
This is our book group pick for the end of the month and from this intro I am really looking forward to it. It is told in (2) timelines past and present day.
What do you think -- Read more or pass?
