Tuesdays I like to link up with Diane at Bibliophile by The Sea to share the First Chapter First Paragraph of a book that I am reading or plan to read soon. Today I share two paragraphs. If you would like to join us, share the first paragraph (or two) of a book, then link up at Diane's blog.
Sue Monk Kidd
Penguin Books 2005
In the middle of my marriage, when I was above all Hugh's wife and Dee's mother, one of those unambiguous women with no desire to stir the universe, I fell in love with a Benedictine monk.
February 17, 1988, I opened my eyes and heard a procession of sounds: first the phone going off on the opposite side of the bed, rousing us at 5:04 am to what could only be a calamity, then rain pummeling the roof of our old Victorian house, sluicing its sneaky way to the basement, and finally small puffs of air coming from Hugh's lower lip, each one perfectly time, like a metronome.
So what do you think? Would you read on?
I picked this book up a while ago, after reading The Secret Life of Bees and Traveling With Pomegranates, both by Sue Monk Kidd. I since have read The Invention of Wings, I love her writing. I chose both the first paragraph of the prologue and the first chapter to give a bit of insight into the book.
I am on page 23 and anxious to continue.
Stay Busy and Stay Happy
