First Chapter ~ First Paragraph #118

It's Tuesday . . . time for . . .


First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros hosted by Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea, where bloggers post the first paragraph(s) of a book they are currently reading or planning to read sometime soon.

Today I'm featuring my current read, Small Mercies by Eddie Joyce, which I borrowed from the library . . .

 Small Mercies 


Gail wakes with a pierced heart, same as every day.  Her mouth is dry.  She reaches for the glass of water on her nightstand, but it has warmed in the night.  Next to her, Michael gently snores away last night's fun.

What do you think?  Would you continue reading?
Small Mercies explores the lives of the Amendola family members--from the beginning days of young romance and budding dreams to the aftermath of coping with tragic loss, the death of their loved one, a New York City firefighter killed in the 9/11 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center.
