This is my second time trying First Chapter First Paragraph Intros. This weekly link-up is hosted by Bibliophile by the Sea. If you would like to join, just share the first paragraph or a few paragraphs from the first chapter of the book that you’re currently reading or that you’re planning on reading. Today’s pick is The Radiant Road by Katherine Catmull.
The First Paragraph of Chapter 1:
Claire was a strange girl, solitary and shy. She was a stranger to the place she lived, and a stranger to the place she was born. And sometimes the Strange came to visit Claire, and dreams walked through her waking life.
Summary from Amazon
After years of living in America, Clare Macleod and her father are returning to Ireland, where they’ll inhabit the house Clare was born in—a house built into a green hillside with a tree for a wall. For Clare, the house is not only full of memories of her mother, but also of a mysterious boy with raven-dark hair and dreamlike nights filled with stars and magic. Clare soon discovers that the boy is as real as the fairy-making magic, and that they’re both in great danger from an ancient foe.
