First Chapter, First Paragraph, is a meme hosted by Bibliophile by the Sea. Anyone can play — just copy the first paragraph of the first chapter (or prologue) and include a picture of the book cover. Leave your link at Bibliophile by the Sea. Here’s the opening from the Prologue of Mesu Andrews‘ Miriam.
I am Miriam, old but of use. I am a slave, a midwife, a healer with herbs. This is what I do, but El Shaddai makes me who I am.
The Hebrews call me prophetess; the Egyptians a seer. But I am neither. I am simply a watcher of Israel and the messenger of El Shaddai. When He speaks to me in dreams, I interpret. When He whispers a melody, I sing.

Here’s mine from the same book:
Pharaoh’s eyes narrowed, as if his stare could bore right through her. “If your god showed you my dreams, surely he can interpret their meaning.”
Miriam tried to swallow but her mouth felt as dry as harvest season.
