Great Opening Paragraph 81… ‘Fair Exchange’ #amwriting #FirstPara

Michèle Roberts “In her youth Louise Daudry, née Geuze, had committed a wicked and unusual crime. At that time, autumn 1792, she wanted money very badly, so she put aside her knowledge that what she was doing was wrong and would hurt others. She told herself that virtue was a luxury the poor could not afford. She let herself be persuaded that no one would ever find out.”
‘Fair Exchange’ by Michèle Roberts
