Welcome to First Line Fridays! The day we grab the book closest to us and share the first line. Join the fun and discover your next read!
Today I’m sharing the first line from Summer of Dreams, by Elizabeth Camden. It just happens to be free on Amazon (as of the time of this posting)! Who doesn’t like a free book!?
Here is the first line:
West Point, New York, 1886
“You want me to do what to a birdcage?”
The daughter of a powerful army general, Evelyn White dreams of attending college and vows she will never marry a man in uniform. . . . which is why West Point cadet Clyde Brixton presents a problem. Clyde’s brilliance in the new field of electrical power has him poised for a promising career in the Army’s Corps of Engineers, but his penchant for racking up demerits threatens his chances for graduation.
Evelyn and Clyde feel instant attraction toward one another as they spend one magical summer together. As their lives become more entwined, their friend Romulus’s begins to come undone. When faced with helping Romulus at the expense of his own future, which one will Clyde choose? And when nothing turns out the way Evelyn planned, where will that leave her own future?
