First Line Fridays – 4/13/18

First Line Fridays

First Line Fridays is hosted by Hoarding Books.

Here’s today’s first line:

Sunday, September 6, 1891 – Portland, Maine

“Everston?” My voice cracked. It sounded very unladylike, which, I suppose, was allowable, considering the situation.

Here’s the book:


I loved this book! You can read my full review here→

  1. Today on my blog, I am sharing the first line from Chasing the Wind by Paula Scott. Here I will post the first line from the prologue of Romeo and Juliet. It’s the book closest to me right now because I’m currently teaching it to my 9 Honors kiddos.

    “Two households, both alike in dignity, in fair Verona, where we lay our scene, from ancient grudge break to new mutiny, where civil blood make civil hands unclean.”

    Have an excellent Friday and a great weekend!

    1. Thank you for sharing! I definitely must read more Shakespeare. All I’ve read so far is one of his sonnets. 😳 Which of his plays do you recommend starting with?

      1. Romeo and Juliet is easy in the sense that you probably already know what the story is about even though you haven’t read it yet. My favorite is Hamlet. I absolutely love that one. May I recommend watching a version first, and then reading it. It will make reading the play a little easier to comprehend.

  2. Happy Friday!
    My FLF is from one of my favorites by Terri Blackstock called Covenant Child.
    “There’s a question that haunts me in the blackest hours of night, when wasted moments crowd my dreams and mock the life I know. The question is this: How could a child born of privilege and promise grow up with nothing?”
    Hope you have a great weekend!

    1. I love that first line! I haven’t read any of Terri Blackstock’s books yet, but I’m eager to try one. I’ve heard a lot of good things about her books. Thank you for stopping by and commenting!

  3. I love love love this series!

    My current first line is from Kathy Herman’s Only By Death – “Liam Berne was about to commit murder – at least according to Arkansas law.”

    1. It’s the only book I’ve read out of the series, and I love it too! I must read the rest of the series. Wow, that’s an intriguing first line! That makes me want to read more. Thank you for stopping by and commenting!

  4. All of Dawn Crandall’s books are fantastic! I’m looking forward to more Everstone adventures!

    I’m reading Julie by Catherine Marshall right now. The first line is: “Our 1928 Willys-Knight had been climbing for at least ten miles, one hairpin turn after another, under a threatening sky.”

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    1. I love that first line! I would be terrified to make a trip like that in an old car. 😀 I have Christy on my TBR, and now I’m adding Julie, too. Thank you for commenting, and have a great weekend, as well!

    1. I loved this book, too! 🙂 Oooh, I didn’t know about the new one being released. I’ll have to read the rest of the series in preparation for that. Thank you for commenting! Happy Friday to you, too!

  5. Hope your Friday was good. On my blog, I’m featuring Jen Turano’s book, A Match of Wits. Here I will share the first line on page 113 of a book I’m currently reading, The Heaven Answer Book by Billy Graham. “Marriage in Heaven will be on a much higher plane because the church will be united with Christ.” Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

    1. Those both sound like great books! I’ve always wondered about marriage in heaven. That’s a very helpful explanation. I’m adding both those books to my TBR list. Thank you for stopping by and commenting! Have a great weekend, as well!
