My first time with this meme!!!!
This week the introduction is from an old time favourite author of mine. Maeve Binchy.
Her covers are idyllic and the stories are always down to earth, family stories which I like very much.
The first chapter in the book goes
It had been very dull and matter of fact in
the coroner's court. No great raised bench
with wigged judges, no dock, no uniformed
police calling down the corridors for the next
person to appear. It was actually quite like an
ordinary office, there were books in glassfronted
cases, and lino on the floor - at one corner it had
definitely been nibbled or chewed by something.
I am eighty pages into the book now and the story is definitely interesting. The setting is WWII and blitz battled England and Ireland are our stages. This is going to be a good one.

Binchy was very adept at drawing the reader into the setting and the characters with her descriptions. Great opener!ReplyDelete
