Greetings to Catholic Answers Forum,
I am very fond of reading books. I also judge a book by its first sentence. If that first sentence captivates me and piques my interest chances are the rest of the book will pique my interest as well.
So what’s the book you are reading and the first sentence of it?
For fun I am reading Anne of Avonlea and here’s the first sentence of it.
A tall, slim girl, “half-past sixteen,” with serious gray eyes and hair which her friends called auburn, had sat down on the broad red sandstone doorstep of a Prince Edward Island farmhouse one ripe afternoon in August, firmly resolved to construe so many lines of Virgil.
