This is a new weekly feature being hosted by Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea. We are to share the opening paragraph (maybe two) of our current read.  Which begs the question...would this be a book you would want to read, based on the opening paragraphs?

This week:

The Greek Maiden and the English Lord by Patty Apostolides

Caen, France

September 1831

Lily exited the dark chamber of the bookseller's store clutching a small book in her grubby hands, content with her purchase.  Her voice was hoarse from selling trinkets all day and she was tired and hungry, yet her victory was not in the number of coins in her pocket, but the leather book in her hand.

A sigh escaped her lips when she spied the crescent glow of the setting sun peaking behind the crown of the stone building she faced.  She was late.

Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment. It means so much.

I apologize for word verification, but as soon as I changed the settings from only users with Google accounts, I started receiving a ton of spam comments...within one hour of changing the settings. The bots are on high alert apparently.

  1. Sounds like a good book. Hope you enjoy it. And neat memo. :)

  2. I would surely want to read more. A bookshop, a book.....I'd be curious. ENJOY
