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

 
First Lines

A sharp clatter jerked Grace Callahan out of the novel she was reading.
 
 Page 56

She took in a deep breath while he waited for her to continue. "I find myself hardly able to breathe sometimes."

  7. Lisa Harris’ book was great!

    My first line is from The Rebel Bride by Shannon McNear:
    September 20, 1863 Battle of Chickamauga, Northern Georgia
    Not for the first time, Joshua Wheeler wondered if he’d descended into hell.

  8. Happy Friday!
    Today I shared the first line from End Game by Rachel Dylan but I'm currently reading Daughter of Rome by Tessa Afshar so I'll share the first line from my current chapter (22) here: "Like a loose thread in an unfinished weaving, Priscilla's well-ordered world unraveled by virtue of one capricious judgment." I'm absolutely LOVING it so far! Hope you have a wonderful weekend with lots of quality reading time! :)

  9. Welp, I can certainly relate to that first line ... and the inevitable annoyance that follows. xD Sounds like an interesting read!

    Here's my Friday post.

  10. Happy Friday! My first line is from "Because of Him" by Kimberly Rae Jordan:

    "Kieran Sutherland only just managed to keep from lifting his arm and elbowing the detective seated beside him in the face."

  11. Happy Friday! 😊

    On my blog I'm sharing the first line from Veiled in Smoke by Jocelyn Green: https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2020/01/03/first-line-friday-117/. Currently I'm reading An Uncommon Woman by Laura Frantz. It's AMAZING!!!

    "The field of winter wheat was sun-drenched and silent, the heated August air already blackened by buzzards."

    Hope you have a great weekend filled with awesome reading time. πŸ™‚❤πŸ“–

  13. Happy Friday! Today I'm sharing the first lines from The Bright Unknown by Elizabeth Byler Younts: "I'm not sure whom I should thank--or blame--for the chance to become an old woman."

    1. I some times wonder what it will be like to become an old woman. By the grace of God we'll get there!

  14. I'm sharing from The Gray Chamber by Grace Hitchcock today. Here is the second line:

    Rounding the corner, she slowed her velocipede and overheard two women gasp at her lack of chapeau and corset.

    Happy Friday!
