Every Tuesday, Diane @ Bibliophile by the Sea
posts the opening paragraph (maybe two) of a book
she decided to read based on the opening paragraph (s).
Feel free to grab the banner and play along!
My selection this week is from a review book titled, "Irish Lady." I chose to read this one because it takes place in Ireland and it has the magical element of blending the past with the present...let's hope it is a good read!
Four centuries had passed and yet I had not forgotten the smell of charred wood nor the searing heat of a fire bent on destruction. I opened my eyes and saw the leap of flame against shadow, gutted dwellings, the silhouette of a church steeple outlined against an orange sky--an entire world engulfed in fire.
Would you continue reading this one
based on the opening paragraph?
