Great Opening Paragraph… 46

maggie o'farrell - after you'd gone 10-6-13“The day she would try to kill herself, she realised winter was coming again. She had been lying on her side, her knees drawn up; she’d sighed. And the heat of her breath had vaporised in the cold air of the bedroom. She pushed the air out of her longs again, watching. Then she did it again, and again. Then she wrenched back the covers and got up. Alice hated winter.”
‘After You’d Gone’ by Maggie O’Farrell

    Well, that certainly captured my attention. I’ve not read anything by Maggie O’Farrell either so will add this one to my wish list. Thank you.
