First Chapter, First Paragraph Tuesday Intros


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 The Snow Child , a book that I've seen around the blogosphere and was instantly intrigued by the blogger's reviews!!!



Wolverine River, Alaska, 1920 

  Mabel had known there would be silence. That was the point, after all. No infants coing or wailing. No neighbor children playfully hollering down the lane. No pad of small feet on wooden stairs worn smooth by generations, or clackety-clack of toys along the kitchen floor. All those sounds of her failure and regret would be left behind, and in their place there would be silence.

Would you continue reading this one
 based on the opening paragraph?
