The hut hung like a swallow's nest on the southern slope of the Apennines. Built of the same stone as the rock on which it stood, it appeared a part of nature, not a work of man. A small window opening was stopped with straw to keep out the cold wind that blew over the mountains."

What a beautiful introduction. Very descriptive and yet not overly so. I would keep reading.

I'd want to know a bit more, but I really like the descriptive opening. I will watch for your thoughts on this one.

Nice image... I wonder what the book is about though.

I like the opening paragraph, but I'd have to read more to know whether I wanted to read all of it. I do hope you're enjoying it.
Curious for a bit more -- enjoy Hattie.
