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: 

  Reforming Lord Neil
by Sally Britton

And the first line is...

August 1815

"Many is Suffolk county doubtless enjoyed a summer's rain.  Teresa Clapham, however, heard the first drops upon her window and bit her lip to keep from crying."  

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, now I need to know why she is getting emotional over rain! Have a wonderful weekend!!

    1. I love it when first lines draw us into the story! Happy reading Donna!

  2. Happy Friday!
    Today on my blog, I'm sharing the first line from Fair as a Star by Mimi Matthews: I'm currently reading The Killing Tide by Dani Pettrey so I will share a line from there:
    "Rissi followed Noah into the station, glad to be back. It’d already been a long day."
    Hope you have a great weekend! 🙂❤📚

  3. Happy Friday! I'm reading from an old book, and the kindle edition is free on Amazon. I have probably read it 10 times! My first line is from "Uncle Max" by Rosa Nouchette Carey:

    "It appears to me, looking back over a past experience, that certain days in one's life stand out prominently as landmarks, when we arrive at some finger-post pointing out the road that we should follow."

    1. I love getting free Kindle books! I think I have just as many Kindle books as I do regular books. :) Happy reading Becky!

  4. My first line is from A Gilded Lady by Elizabeth Camden which I finished this week.
    June 30, 1900
    There was no such thing as a typical day at the White House, but Caroline Delacroix’s morning took a particularly difficult turn the moment she walked into her crowded office,

    Happy Reading!

    1. That sounds like a great book! Happy reading Paula!

  5. Happy Friday! Today, I'm sharing the first line from The Heart of a Hero by Susan May Warren: "In the daylight, Jake Silver wasn't the devil."

  6. Happy Friday!!
    Over on my blog I shared one of the lines from Key to Everything by Valerie Frasier Luesse
    "Sometime during the night, it had begun to rain, a steady downpour pelting the tin roof of Aunt Gert's bungalow and lightly misting Peyton's face."

    Oh I want to know why shes so sad!! I am adding this to my TBR list!
    Happy Weekend

    1. I love this first line--the pelting rain on a tin roof sounds so relaxing! Happy reading!
