First Chapter Tuesday

 It's Tuesday again (I'm very confused as to what day it is at the moment, due to the Easter break), which means 'First Chapter Tuesday' in conjuntion with 'Bibliophile By The Sea'.

I'm coming to the end of 'The Kasmir Shawl' by Rosie Thomas and here is the opening paragraph to the book:

'Mair made the discovery on the last day at home in the old house.
        The three of them were upstairs in their father's bedroom. They had come together for the melancholy business of sorting and clearing their parents' furniture and possessions, before closing up the house for the last time and handing over the keys to the estate agent. It was the end of May and the lambs had just been taken away to market. Out on the hill the sheep were bleating wildly, loud, incessant and bewildered cries that were carried in with the scent of spring grass.'

Would you continue reading this?


  1. I definitely would. Let us know how it is : )

  2. Yes, yes, I like this intro. I hope the rest is as good. Enjoy, and so happy you joined in again this week. Thanks

  3. Thanks for stopping by Melissa and Diane! If you ever get to read this, let me know what you think of it.

  4. Always enjoy Rosie Thomas's books. Glad to say this is one of her best, especially as it won the Epic category in the Romantic Novel of the Year award that my novel was also nominated for last year!
