Searching for...

Tuesday, 9 June 2015



today featuring June's ReadaLong at #TraveltheWorldinBooks

We begin with the opening paragraph for First Paragraph First Chapter
Tuesday Intros at Diane's Bibliophile by the Sea ~

London, 1913

"It was dark where she was crouched but the little girl did as she'd been told.  The lady had said to wait, it wasn't safe yet, they had to be as quiet as larder mice.  It was a game,
 just like hide-and-seek.


Then add a Tuesday Teaser at Jenn's A Daily Rhythm . Two sentences from anywhere
in the book.  No plot spoilers.
"A moment of suspension and she found herself holding her breath, palms flat beside her, then the boat heaved and pushed itself away from the dock. They were on their way."


Shall I keep reading...?

I have been eyeing this one for a while. Love that cover, and now the snippets are drawing me in. Thanks for sharing.

Here's mine: “THE CRY”

I started this one, but couldn't get into it. Someday I would like to try again.

Mel said...

Ooo...great teaser! Already on my TBR list, but this might have bumped it up!

Greg said...

Hmm, I wonder where they're going. It already has me curious... and the I like that cover a lot.

Kay said...

I read another book by this author and enjoyed it, The Distant Hours (think that was it). I keep meaning to read her other books. This one sounds lovely. And yes, I'd continue.

JoAnn said...

I listened to this book several years ago and enjoyed it quite a bit, so I say you should continue :)

Very intriguing teaser. Sounds like a good read.

Sandra Nachlinger said...

Beautiful cover. The opening makes me wonder what's happening and why the little girl has to hide. I'd keep reading to find out more!
My Tuesday post features The Chair.

After reading a couple this author's books, I grabbed this one and have yet to read it. Enjoy.

Lucy said...

I'm really enjoying this one--it's by the computer and open in front of me now, as it happens! The rest of the book lives up to this very promising and intriguing first paragraph. I love how logically the three time periods revolve around each other in this tightly crafted narrative.
