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: 

  Awake at Widmore Manor
by Jessilyn Stewart Peaslee

And the first line is...

June 1799

"A single pea.  That was all that lay inside the pod that little Emma Widmore plucked off the vine."  

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. What an interesting line! Happy Friday!!

  2. Sounds like an interesting story!

  3. Interesting first line.
    I am currently reading The Duke’s Refuge by Lorri Dudley. Here’s the first line:
    Nevis, British Leeward Islands
    …Why did you not mention your illness sooner?

  4. Happy Friday!
    Today on my blog I am sharing the first line from Waltz in the Wilderness by Kathleen Denly: I am just getting into the novel, so I will share the first line from chapter 2 here.
    "Daniel thanked the postman and stepped away from the window. Tapping the single envelope against his palm, he strode past the long line of men who, like him, had been waiting hours for news from home."
    Hope you have an excellent weekend!

    1. Thank you Nicole! I can't wait to read that book--happy reading!

  5. Happy Friday! Today I'm sharing the first line from The Camera Never Lies by David Rawlings: "Eighty-eight years of life reduced to a vintage, cracked briefcase sat before Daniel Whiteley."

  6. Happy Friday! I’m sharing the first lines from The Rebel Bride by Shannon McNear on my blog today. This is the first line from Chapter 3:

    “Standing at the top of the porch steps, Pearl clenched her hands inside her wadded-up apron and glared at her cousin, who faced her from beside the wagon holding more wounded soldiers.”

  7. Happy Weekend! My first line is from "This Healing Journey" by Misty Beller:

    "Meeting a stranger shouldn't make him so nervous."
