First Line Friday – 9.1.17

first-line-friday-3

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 Against the Tide by Elizabeth Camden.

Against the Tide

 

Here’s the first line from the Prologue:

Lydia was embarrassed to wear a damp dress on the first day of school, but it rained last night while her clothes were strung across the boat’s rigging to dry.

This is the first book I have read by Elizabeth Camden and I must admit I now understand why so many rave about her writing. Look for my full review HERE.

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

  1. I’m another Elizabeth Camden fan. She’s an excellent writer, and I love the way she finds unique twist on history for her stories.

    My first line today is from the book I’m currently reading, Embracing Hope by Janell Butler Wojtowicz:

    Drew McKinley twisted he gold wedding band around and around his finger then made a tight fist.

    I’m looking forward to reading it.

  2. I keep meaning to read one of her novels and never seem to get around to it. I’ll have to change that!

    I’ve got the first line from Ronie Kendig’s “Crown of Souls” – Tox! 😍 – on my blog today, but I’m going to share the first line from the book I just finished reading, Tamera Alexander’s “To Wager Her Heart”:

    Alexandra Jamison had always wanted a sister.

  3. This has been on my TBR pile for so long. Unfortunately, the pile is so long that I haven’t had the chance to get around to it yet! What an intriguing first line!

    I’m sharing about “The Day the Angels Fell” by Shawn Smucker on my blog today, but I’m going to share the first line from the book I’m currently reading, “Under Fire” by Linda Shenton Matchell.
