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: 

  Mr. Gardiner and the Governess
by Sally Britton

And the first line is...

May 1818

"For most of Alice Sharpe's life, her relatives passed her from one home to another, the same way one might pass an unwanted family heirloom with little more value than sentiment."  

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!!

    Over on my blog I am sharing the first line from Fortune's Fall by Katherine Barger.
    "The buzzer's ear-splitting wail pierces the silent auditorium."

    Have a lovely weekend hopefully filled with reading! 😍

  2. My first line comes from Linda Thompson’s new book: The Mulberry Leaf Whispers:
    Saturday April 18, 1942 Pacific Ocean off the coast of Japan
    Sub-Lieutenant Matsuura Akira paced the open bridge of Nitto Maru. He had drawn the watch, as usual.

  3. I can't wait to read that book! Merry Christmas Nicole!
