First Line Friday – 8.4.17


Whether you’re looking for a good book or just curious what others are reading, you’ve come to the right place. Each Friday I pick a book and share the first line with you. This week I am sharing the first line from Never Forget by Jody Hedlund.

Never Forget

Here’s the first line:

Rose Island Lighthouse, Rhode Island

June 1880

“I’m warning you, girl,” Zeke Crawford called from his dory.

This is the second book I have read by Jody Hedlund. (The first having been The Preacher’s Bride.)  Although this is the 5th book in the Beacons of Hope Series, I have not read any previous books in this series and so can honestly attest that it may indeed be read as a stand alone book. That said, I have just added the previous four books to my TBR (to be read list)!

Now it’s your turn! Grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first (or your favorite) line!

Then head on over and share your first line with these friends:

  3. Lovely cover!

    Now that I have a bookshelf within reach of my desk, I’m grabbing one I hope to read this year.
    “Romulus White stood motionless in the crowded ballroom, staring at a woman he’d once longed for more than his next breath of air.”
    – From this Moment, by Elizabeth Camden


  4. Great first line – and a beautiful cover.

    I’m currently reading My Unexpected Hope by Tammy L Gray, which has a great first line:

    Moonlight leaked through the dirt-splotched windows of Joe’s Bar, it’s silvery rays glinting off the tumbler in front of Laila Richardson’s saddest customer.

    I’m sharing the first line from The Space Between Words on my website. I hope you stop by and check it out.
