*Disclaimer - I totally stole this idea from Lisa Collicut
"Last night I dreamed I went to Manderley again."
"Few people would look kindly on my reasons for marrying Philip; neither love nor money nor his title induced me to accept his proposal."
"To say I met Nicholas Brisbane over my husband's dead body is not entirely accurate."
"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife."
is one of the most lovely books I've ever read, and if you haven't read it, you really should pick it up.
"All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way."
"I am dead, but it's not so bad."
So what books have you read and were totally caught up by the first sentence? Or totally fooled by that first sentence?
