First Chapter ~ First Paragraph

It's Tuesday . . . time for . . . 

. . . First Chapter ~ First Paragraph Tuesday Intros . . . now hosted by Yvonne at Socrates' Book Reviews, where bloggers share excerpts from a book they have read, are currently reading, or are planning to read.

Today I'm featuring The Love of My Life by Rosie Walsh. The excerpt shared is from a hardcover version borrowed from the library.

First Chapter:  Leo

Her eyelashes are often wet when she wakes, as if she's been swimming in a sea of bad dreams. "It's just some sleep-related thing," she's always said. "I never have nightmares." After a fathomless yawn she'll wipe her eyes and slip out of bed to check Ruby is alive and breathing. It's a habit she's been unable to break, even though Ruby's three.


What do you think?  Would you continue reading? 

I remember checking on a sleeping child long past the age of three. It's something mothers do the world over. In any event, there's lots of buzz around this new book and I am eager to give it a try.

  2. The writing in the intro pulled me right in. It sounds good.
