First Line Fridays

I am so excited to start reading a new series by Carolyn Miller!  This series is entitled--Regency Brides: A Promise of Hope--and the first book is Winning Miss Winthrop.  I love the covers of each novel--you can already view all three books on Amazon.  :)  There are so many wonderful stories coming out this spring, and I am trying desperately hard to note every single one on my Goodreads page.  What books are you most looking forward to reading this spring? 

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

Today I am going to post a line from: 

  Winning Miss Winthrop
by Carolyn Miller 

And the first line is...

May 1816

"The deeply blue Gloucestershire sky brought comfort as Catherine Winthrop emerged from the tenant farmhouse.  She drew in a deep breath of clover-scented air then turned to the farmer. 'I am sure the doctor will be able to relieve poor Anne more than I.  I'll have word sent as soon as I return.'" 

Happy reading, Happy Good Friday, and Happy Easter!  

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


  1. Some day I'm going to have to just binge the whole series! I need to double check and see if it's on Audible. Thanks Heather!
