First Chapter ~ First Paragraph #121

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, The Canterbury Sisters by Kim Wright, borrowed from the library.

 The Canterbury Sisters 


You know that old Chinese curse that goes "May you live in interesting times"?  I've always thought the modern-day corollary was "May you have an interesting mother."  Because I was cursed the minute I was born to the impetuous, talented, politically radical, and sexually experimental Diana de Milan.

What do you think?  Would you continue reading?
I enjoy books that explore mother-daughter relationships.  This particular story creates an interesting experience for a daughter tasked with carrying out her mother's wish.
