First Line Fridays

First Line Fridays – 1.26.18

First Line Fridays, Hoarding BooksIt’s First Line Friday time.  Today’s first line is taken from the book:

The Innkeeper of Ivy Hill by Julie Klassen

Julie Klassen

So here’s the first line.  Drumroll please…….

Jane Fairmont Bell sat alone in the keeper’s lodge she had once shared with her husband.

That sentence says so much, doesn’t it?  And makes me ask a lot of questions:  What happened to her husband?  Why is she alone?

In return, I hope you will share the first line from any book you choose in the comments below.  And then head on over to:First Line Friday

Happy Reading,

  1. It sounds like her husband may have passed away. The first line feels sad. I like this author.

    The first line on my blog is from a novel by Michelle Griep, The Captive Heart. Here, I will share the first line of Chapter 5 from the book I’m currently reading, The Captivating Lady Charlotte by Carolyn Miller “It was entirely possible that the excitement of last month’s come-out ball was about to be surpassed.”

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Happy Friday! (What’s left!) My first lines (sorry, but I included the 2nd) is from These Healing Hills by Ann H. Gabhart:

    “Francine Howard stepped off the bus into another world. She should have been prepared.”

  3. I love Julie’s books!

    My current first line is from Cathy Gohlke’s Until We Find Home: “Lightning crackled, splitting the night sky over Paris, illuminating letters painted on the bookstore window across the street: La Maison des Amis des Livres.”

Would love to hear your thoughts....
