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 Peasant's Dream 
by Melanie Dickerson

And the first line is...

"Adela stood watching her brother Steffan marry his true love, Katerina of Hamlin, memorizing how the autumn sun bathed everythig in warm light and made the stained glass windows of Hamlin Cathedral spark and glow."  

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!

    I can't wait to read this one!

    On my blog this week, I'm sharing the opening lines from Love and a Little White Lie by Tammy L Gray which has been one of my favorite reads this year.

    "I've face planted myself into rock bottom. Well, maybe a hammock above rock bottom-one my aunt Doreen graciously set out for me when I found myself abandoned and broke."

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend :)

    1. Thank you Kirby! I love Melanie Dickerson's fairy tale books--they are the best! Happy reading!

  2. My first lines are from MINUTES TO DIE by Susan Sleeman:
    Chapter 1
    Exposed. Kiley felt exposed. Standing there. In the dark. Waiting. Waiting.

  3. Happy Friday! Today, I'm sharing the first lines from Wedded to War by Jocelyn Green. "When Charlotte and Alice told their mother they were taking the omnibus down Broadway, they weren't lying. They just didn't tell her where they would be getting off."

  4. Happy Friday!!

    My line is from A Nurse for Jacob by Caryl Macadoo ""Lydia admired the two-story building from the corner of Gaienne and Old Levee Streets, strode up the walk, then stopped at the front of the Touro Infirmary and adjusted her cap."

    Have a lovely weekend!

  5. Happy Friday! 🙂
    I'm currently reading A Life Once Dreamed by Rachel Fordham. I'm on chapter seven so I'll share the first line from there:
    "Sam Landon made his way over to the schoolhouse, toolbox in one hand, lunch tin in the other."
    I hope you have an excellent weekend! 🙂❤📚

    1. Thank you Nicole! Lunch I'm hungry. :) Happy reading!
