First Chapter-First Paragraph...

The girl was the first to hear the loud pounding on the door. Her room was the closest to the entrance of the apartment. At first, dazed with sleep,she thought it was her father, coming up from his hiding place in the cellar. He'd forgotten his keys, and was impatient because nobody had heard his first timid knock. But then came the voices, strong and brutal in the silence of the night. Nothing to do with her father. "Police! Open up! Now!"

Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay

Would you keep reading? I'm not sure. It could be so painful, I am afraid...


  1. That's a great intro, and I can't believe I still have not read this book. I hope you enjoy it.

  2. I have been wanting to read this one for awhile now. The intro is a great tease!
