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 a book that I will be reviewing for the author later this month. I'm always interested in real people's stories and this one has me intrigued.

  When I was thirteen years old, I overhead a conversation that would change my life. The shocking news would lead me on a worldwide search for a stranger with piercing blue eyes and sun-colored hair, lasting forty-three years.

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