First Lines Friday and 56 ~ 7/26/19

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

First Lines

August 1812
Crowds swarmed around and jostled against the Whittaker carriage, slowing its progress from a trot to a crawl.

 Page 56
Whitaker's breath snagged in his throat.  His hands balled into fists on his thighs.

  1. Definitely leaves you wanting to know what is going on.... :-) I added you to the Linky. Happy weekend!

  2. What an attractive cover. Hope you are enjoying the contents as well! My Friday quotes

  3. Over on my blog I'm sharing the first line from The Express Bride (Daughters of the Mayflower) by Kimberley Woodhouse.

    Here I'll share the first line from chapter sixteen of the book I'm currently reading:

    "Footsteps signaled someone's approach, and Grace paused her kneading in the pre-dawn morning, waiting for the customary greeting from one of the brothers."
    Four Dreams of You by Sondra Kraak

  4. Happy Friday! I haven't started this yet, but my first line (well - 2 lines) is from "Margin of Error" by Christy Barritt:

    "Hunger and anger battled inside him like two storm fronts colliding. A violent friction clashed in his very soul."

  5. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog I'm sharing the first line from Cross My Heart by Robin Lee Hatcher: I'm currently reading Ever Faithful by Karen Barnett, so I'll share the first line from there.

    "Elsie closed her eyes for a moment and breathed in the steamy air, imagining she stood beside Grand Prismatic Spring instead of the massive laundry boiler in the back of the Mammoth Hot Springs Lodge."

    Hope you have an excellent weekend! 🙂❤📚

  6. Those are great lines!
    Happy Friday!
    Today I'm sharing the first line of Searching For You by Jody Hedlund over on my blog. So I'll share the first line of the chapter I'm currently on here:

    "Och, dinnae tell me I'm too late!"

  7. Today on my blog I shared the first line from A Lady's Maid by Jen Geigle Johnson but it's also the book I'm about to dig into so no extra line yet. Hope you have a great weekend!

  8. From the cover and the excerpts, I think it looks like an old-fashioned romance :) Hope you're enjoying it!

  9. Happy Friday! Today I'm sharing the first lines from No Ocean Too Wide by Carrie Turansky: "Katie McAlister's heart pounded out a frantic beat as she gripped the rickety railing and rushed down the back stairs."

  10. Happy Friday! I’m sharing from The Yellow Lantern by Angie Dicken today. Here is the first line from Chapter 2:

    “The factory rose above with row upon row of sharp-edged bricks.”

  11. Looks like a good read! Thanks for joining us for First Line Friday.

    Enjoy your weekend. :-)

  12. A great first line! I’m sharing on my blog the first line from Underestimating Miss Cecilia by Carolyn Miller.

    It was, perhaps, the greatest torment to love someone who barely seemed to notice one’s existence.
