It's Tuesday . . . time for . . .
Today I'm featuring Oh William! by Elizabeth Strout. The excerpt shared is from a hardcover version borrowed from the library.
First Chapter: I would like to say a few things about my first husband, William.
William has lately been through some very sad events--many of us have--but I would like to mention them, it feels almost a compulsion; he is seventy-one years old now.
What do you think? Would you continue reading?
I am very intrigued by the opening sentences, and get the feeling that there is quite a story to unfold.
