‘It’s so hard, when you fall for someone – the temptation is to look back on the past and rewrite things so they seem more significant. There’s a part of me going: Did I know? Did I know the first time we met that you would change everything? That you would change me? But I didn’t. I’m sure I didn’t.’
‘These are the things that you need to know:
- I hear voices.
- I miss you.
- I wish I could take back what I did to you.
- What they said in the news, what they said I did. It’s not true. You don’t have to worry about that.
- I’m going to write it all down, all about Paris and why I broke your heart, and then I’m going to e-mail it to you. It will take you, I don’t know, a couple of days to read. So I will be waiting for you at 5:00pm Friday by the windmill hole of Pirate Golf on Pier One, where we played that one time.’
I am a sucker for lists (in moderation… *glares at Todd Hasak-Lowy*) so this opening page was actually the thing that made me decide to read ‘Whisper For Me’ while I was browsing in the library. That, combined with the beautiful cover.
I also love mysteries, particularly when they’re set up so early in the story. I had so many questions based off of this first page, so it was almost impossible to put the book down.
