First Line Fridays

 
 
Grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first line!

Today I am going to post a line from: 

  Unyielding Hope
by Janette Oke and
Laurel Oke Logan

 
And the first line is...
 
 
Lillian
 
"'Mama.'  The word came quietly at first, then grew in intensity.  'Mama! Mama!'  Lillian's small body wrestled in the dark bedroom until her thick quilt became tangled, constricting around her tiny shoulders."
 
 
Happy reading and happy Friday!   

        Let me know your first line in the comments & then head over to Hoarding Books to see                                                                  who else is participating!

  1. Happy Friday! My first line is from “Stay With Me” by Becky Wade:

    “The hallway floor jolts downward beneath my feet, throwing me off balance.”

    I love Janette Oke, and really need to get around to reading this one.

    My first line this week comes The Traitor's Pawn by Lisa Harris:

    "Watch Your Back.....this isn't over."

    Hope you have a great weekend :)

  3. Happy Friday! 🙂
    Today on my blog I'm sharing from Masquerade at Middlecrest Abbey by Abigail Wilson. It's an excellent novel! Currently I'm reading Unveiling the Past by Kim Vogel Sawyer. I'm on chapter 19, so I'll post a line from there.
    "It shouldn't surprise us that someone else lives at the address from 1998."
    Hope you have a great weekend!

  4. Happy Friday!
    This week on my blog I shared the first line from This Wandering Heart by Janine Rosche but I'm currently reading Of Literature and Lattes by Katherine Reay so I'll share the first line from my current chapter (17) here: "Alyssa was sitting at her dad's old desk sorting through her notes on Jeremy's data when her mom walked through the back door and into the kitchen." Hope you have a great reading weekend!

  5. My first line is from Storing Up Trouble by Jen Turano:
    September 1886
    The truth of the matter was this—she, Miss Beatrix Waterbury, had been banished from New York, and all because she’d had the great misfortune of landing herself in jail…twice.
