First Line Fridays


This week I wanted to highlight the first book in a trilogy series, Rachelle Rea Cobb's book The Sound of Diamonds, which is the first book in the Steadfast Love series.  I am excited to read each of these books--this first book has been collecting dust in my Kindle waiting to be read.  :)  At the end of the month, I will be talking about the third book, The Sound of Emeralds, for Rachelle's Birthday Blog Tour.  So do not forget to check that out!  As always, please be sure to check out the book lines from these other amazing bloggers too:    

Sydney from Singing Librarian
Rachel from Bookworm Mama
Andie from Radiant Light
Katie from Fiction Aficionado
Kathleen from Kathleen Denly
Lauraine from Lauraine's Notes

Today I am going to post a line from:

 The Sound of Diamonds 
by Rachelle Rea Cobb 



And the first line is...

Leiden, the Low Countries, the Netherlands 
23 august 1566

"A crash shook the nun's cell I had called my own since seeking refuge in my mother's homeland.  My gaze snapped to the door."  

Happy reading and Happy Friday!

  1. I've had this series on my TBR for a while. I must try and get to it soon.

    I'm featuring Bodie & Brock Thoene's "Behold the Man" this week, seeing as it's Easter. Speaking of which, have a blessed one!

  2. I haven't heard of Rachelle Rea, but it sounds good. Happy Friday! My first line is from Noelle Marchand's "The Nanny's Temporary Triplets" : "By the power vested in me by God and the state of Texas" --- "Stop this wedding!"

  4. I started this book this week even though I kept telling myself I don't have time to read AND close out a school year! :-)

    My first line is from Candice Curry's autobiography A CON MAN'S DAUGHTER: "I could hear my name being called, but I was stuck somewhere between a dream and reality."

    But the line that made me keep reading is this one, a thought Candice had as a 13-year-old: "I strained to hear God's voice in my ear but only heard Satan whisper how much he loved me."

  5. My first line comes from GRACE by Max Lucado.

    Some years ago I underwent a heart procedure.
