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: 

  The Earl and His Lady
by Sally Britton

And the first line is...

May 1812 

"Virginia, Baroness Heatherton, crushed the letter from the barrister in her hand, hating each word it contained."  

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. Wow! Exciting! Your book takes place very close in time to mine!

    My first lines are from The Lost Lieutenant by Erica Vetsch:

    Seaton Estate Berkshire, England January 4, 1813

    “You’ll do as you’re told if you know what’s good for you. I won’t be humiliated again.”

    Just finished this phenomenal book!

  2. Oh wow, that's an exciting line! Happy Friday!!

  3. Happy Friday! 🙂
    On my blog I'm sharing from Until the Mountains Fall by Connilyn Cossette. I'm currently on chapter 20, so I'll share from there.
    "My family and Hakim's family, along with Baz and his wife and daughters, were gathered around the long table in the courtyard, oil lamps flickering joyfully along its length."
    Hope you have a great weekend filled with awesome reading time. 😀❤📚

    1. Thank you so much Nicole! Happy reading to you too!

  4. Happy Friday! Today, I'm sharing the first line from Secrets of the Pastor's Wife by Christina Ryan Claypool: "When Cassandra Martin first moved to Maple Grove, the silence in the middle of the night seemed eerie."

  5. Happy Friday! My first line is from "More Than Friends" by Autumn Macarthur:

    "Catriona Maclean returned the phone to its niche, slumped onto the worn oak bench in the entrance hall of the manse, and groaned out loud. She needed a man."

  6. Happy Friday!!

    My first line is from Janalyn Voigt's DawnSinger- tales of Faeraven
    "A crosswind caught Kai's wingabeast as lightning flared too near."

    Have an awesome weekend!
