First Line Friday – 9.15.17

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 The Lady and the Lionheart by Joanne Bischoff.

The Lady and the Lionheart

Here’s the first line:

Roanoke, Virginia

Spring 1890

With the hiss of smoothing irons and the starchy scent of soap trailing her, Ella toted a bundle of hospital linens up the steps.

This one has been sitting on my To Be Read list for far too long! I am so happy to report that I have finally found the time to read it and you will soon be able to read my full review.

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 ashamed to say this is STILL sitting on my TBR pile!

    I’ve got the first line from Janet Ferguson’s new release, Magnolia Storms, on my blog today, but I’m going to share the first line from my current read: Many Sparrows, by Lori Benton (Oh. My. Word! ❤️ )

    “Jeremiah Ring had witnessed death as often as the next man on the Allegheny frontier, but in all his thirty years he had encountered no deaths more dismaying than those confronting him now.”

    It feels wrong, somehow, to follow that up with ‘have a good weekend’, but I hope you do! 🙂

  2. I have The Lady and the Lionheart and am excited to read it soon.

    Happy Friday! My first line is from A Christmas to Remember by Linda Brooks Davis:

    1908 4 days until Christmas
    “The line of delicate stitches blurred to a crimson smudge.”

  3. I need to read this so badly!

    I’m sharing about “The League and the Lantern” by Brian Wells over at my blog today, but the closest book to me (which is on my Kindle at the moment) is “All of You” by Sarah Monzon.

    Present Day, 100 Miles off the Coast of Virginia

    Lieutenant Michael “Finch” Carrington pulled up the zipper of his green flight suit and started at the mass on the opposite rack.

  4. This is on my to-read pile as well. Too many books, too little time!

    I don’t think my kids even know there was such a thing as film canisters. They were useful for a lot of random things, but I never made a rocket out of one!

    I’m sharing from Jewel of the Stars by Adam David Collings on my blog today, but I’m currently reading Uncharted Hope by Keely Brooke Keith. Here’s the first line:

    At half past nine, boots scuffed the pavestones outside the medical cottage, followed by a rapid-fire knock.

  5. Definitely can’t wait to read this one!

    Right now, I’m reading Love Held Captive by Shelley Shepard Gray. It’s the final novel in the Lone Star Hero trilogy. The first line is:

    “There was almost nothing there. Almost.”
