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: 

  An Amish Christmas Wedding
by Amy Clipston, Kelly Irvin, Kathleen Fuller, Vannetta Chapman

And the first line is...

"Evergreen Love" 
by Amy Clipston 

"Lorene lifted her head after a silent prayer and surveyed the supper table, set with her father's favorite meal."  

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. I'm sharing that book on my blog today, too, and am very much looking forward to reading it! I'm currently reading the second novella in The Kissing Tree which is by Karen Witemeyer. The first line of that novella is "Illogical business proposals made Barnabas Ackerly's skin itch, but this one irritated like a hundred mosquito bites treated with a poison ivy poultice."

    1. Great minds think alike! There are so many Christmas books I want to read--happy reading Ellie!

  2. Happy Friday!!

    "I have a bad feeling about this, Father." Meredoch felt a scowl contorting his face.
    My first line comes from the book Succession by Brett Armstrong.

    Have a lovely weekend!!

    1. Wow, what a great first line! Thanks Kelly-Ann--have a great weekend too and happy reading!

  3. Happy Friday! I'm sharing the first line from The Lady and the Highwayman by Sarah M. Eden over on my blog today. I'm enjoying it very much. Here's a line from the chapter I'm currently on:
    "Elizabeth decided to forebear late-night visitors."
    Hope you have a wonderful weekend! 🙂❤📚

    1. Thanks Nicole! I love the title of that book--it reminds me of a poem. Happy reading!

  4. Happy Friday! Today, I'm sharing the first line from Almost a Bride by Jody Hedlund. "Hello, beautiful. Will you marry me?"

  5. I’m sharing the first line of chapter 19 of The Love Note by Joanna Politano:
    If I should happen to fall in love, the outcome of such a plight depends, like any big fall, on who is there to catch me.
