First Lines Friday and 56 ~ 2/1/19

Today's "First Lines" and "56" are from:

Savannah, December 20, 1870

Gunfire exploded to the right of the stage, a burst of sound that temporarily deafened her.

Philip filled two plates and motioned India into the hallway.  "It seems the chairs are all taken.  Do you mind sitting on the stairs?"

Also linking up to:


  1. What is the time period that the book is set in? It looks lovely. My book was Where the Crawdads Sing

  2. I really liked that book. My first line comes from Between Two Shores by Jocelyn Green — “I told you, I’m not staying.” Have a great weekend!

  3. Oh, this one's a great book!

    I'm currently reading The Secret of Willow Inn by Pat Nichols. Here's the first line: As far back as Emily Hayes could remember, her heart yearned for a sister.

    Happy Friday!

  4. Great snippets! Intriguing beginning, and beautiful cover! Happy weekend!

  5. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog, I'm sharing the first line from The Christmas Remedy by Cindy Woodsmall and Erin Woodsmall. It's a sweet little book if you haven't read it yet. I'm currently starting The Seamstress by Allison Pittman, so I'll share the first line from this book.

    "My first and last memories are my cousin Laurette."

    I'm very excited to read this book!

    Hope you have a great weekend filled with awesome reading time. ๐Ÿ˜€❤๐Ÿ“š

  6. Lovely cover and the quotes make me curious about the story. I'm featuring The Military Wife by Laura Trentham from my review stack this week. Happy reading!

  7. Happy Friday!
    On my blog today I'm sharing the first line from True Nobility by Lori Bates Wright but I have no extra line to share right now b/c I'm currently in-between books and getting ready to head out to Snow Camp with the youth group. Brrrrr! Hope you have a great weekend!

  8. Loving this cover. Great choice for a first line! Here's my First Line Friday if you'd like to stop by! I'm also a blog follower.

  9. What an opening! Sounds like a good book!

    My first line is from A Desperate Hope by Elizabeth Camden: "Alex Duval's first hint of trouble was when Eloise failed to appear at their hideaway."

  10. Happy Weekend! My first line (well, first 2 lines) is from "Ellie's Redemption" by Molly Jebber:

    "Ellie Graber glanced at Joel Wenger across the room. Her heart raced, and her cheeks warmed."
