First Chapters First Paragraph Tuesday Intros and Teaser Tuesday

We will always love Paris

First Chapters First Paragraph Tuesday Intros is hosted by (Vicki) I’d rather be by the beach. Every Tuesday Vicki shares the first paragraph, maybe two, of a book that she is reading or planning to read soon; and Teaser Tuesday hosted by The Purple Booker.  Feel free to participate.

This week I will be introducing the first chapters, paragraphs and teasers of my current read – We’ll always have Paris by Sue Watson.

Intro

All he wants is pineapple yoghurt. It might be his dying wish and I can’t find a pot anywhere. It’s the least I can do for my husband now lying in bed at home with nothing left of his life just a tube in his arm and a vague desire for pineapple in fermented milk.

I have trawled all local supermarkets and convenience stores and now screeching into a parking space at a Tesco too far away. I stop for three seconds, calm myself and check my watch. I have been gone fifty-three minutes and I miss already.

Teaser

“I know ….perhaps more like the day before yesterday?” I suggest and we instinctively start walking again. “The day before yesterday. When we were young” he sighs casting his eyes down on the grass and we walk for a few seconds in silence. “Do you still sketch?” he asks

About the book

When she was almost seventeen, Rosie Draper locked eyes with a charismatic student called Peter during their first week at Art College, changing the course of her life forever. Now, on the cusp of sixty-five and recently widowed, Rosie is slowly coming to terms with a new future. And after a chance encounter with Peter, forty-seven years later, they both begin to wonder ‘what if’ . . .

Told with warmth, wit and humour, We’ll Always Have Paris is a charming, moving and uplifting novel about two people; the choices they make, the lives they lead and the love they share. – Good reads

  1. I enjoy books that feature older characters. Maybe because I’m an older character myself! This sounds like a terrific second-chance novel.
