First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros is a weekly meme hosted by Bibliophile By the Sea. We share the first paragraph ( or a few) of a book we are reading or thinking about reading soon.
“So this was freedom. The canoe went with the river’s tide, water bumping against the bow. Dirk Van Dyck looked at the little girl and wondered: Was this journey a terrible mistake?”
This is from New York by Edward Rutherfurd. This book has been sitting on my shelf for a long time , and now I am eager to start it. I read a lot of romance novels, but lately I find myself wanting to experience something different. I believe this novel will be a good one.
What about you? What first paragraph you’d like to share?
