First Chapter -- First Paragraph -- Tuesday Intros

Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea hosts First Chapter, First Paragraph, Tuesday Intros. This week's intro is from The Orchid House by Lucinda Riley:

Norfolk, England

I have the same dream every night. It's as if my life is thrown up into the air and all the pieces are sent down . . . back, to front and inside out. All part of my life and yet in the wrong order, the view fragmented.

People say that dreams are important and they tell you something, something that you are hiding from yourself.

I am hiding nothing from myself; I only wish I could.

I go to sleep to forget. To find some peace, because I spend the whole day remembering.


  1. This intro really got my attention -- wondering what what secrets she has? I would read on and now am anxious to try this book.

  2. This has been on my radar. Looks intriguing.

  3. Interesting opening. I wonder what she wants to forget.
