First Line: So Far Away, by Meg Mitchell Moore

This week, I’m reading So Far Away, an unlikely mother-daughter story by Meg Mitchell Moore. Moore may sound familiar from her first book The Arrivals, which I admit I haven’t read (yet). Enjoy the first line, review to come soon.

It was a Friday when the girl came into the Archives for the first time, the first Friday after they’d changed the clocks. Spring ahead, fall back: Kathleen had once learned some rhyme about it. It had been some time since she’d been a school child. This was early November, the leaves mostly down, lying wet and slick all over Boston.
