My book beginnings is taken from LEOPARD AT THE DOOR by Jennifer McVeigh: 

"The steward has said we will dock at 9:00 o'clock, but I am too excited to sleep, and I walk onto deck in the dark, long before the sun comes up, watching for the first sight of land.  I pull a packet of cigarettes from my coat pocket, light one and inhale, smoke curling up into the warm night sky."
