First Line Friday

An Amish Home

It’s FRIDAY which means I get to share a great line once a week with your from a book I am reading. I found this to be an exciting and entertaining way to find new authors, books and bloggers. So I am opening up the book I have been reading this week, and going to the first chapter and finding the first line…

This Weeks First Line Friday Brought to You By

Four Novellas

by Beth Wiseman

An Amish Home: Four Novellas by Beth Wiseman

This week's line is:

“The cold air seemed to seep into the marrow of Mia O’Connor’s bones, and her teeth chattered as her husband steered their pickup past a large white farmhouse.”

This week I also have the review of this wonderful book up, and it is a great read. It is containing four beautiful and moving novellas that are sure to make you want more. I chose to highlight Amy Clipston’s Home Sweet Home. It is also the novella that I highlight in my review here.

Now it's Your Turn

Open the book nearest you and post the first line of the first chapter in the comments below, I would love to see into the book you are reading.

    Hi Bree, and Happy Friday!

    My first line comes from Just The Way You Are by Pepper Basham set to release this April.

    One step into the massive, glass-walled waiting area was all it took. In a cataclysmic chain of events, someone bumped into Eisley Barrett, sending her purse and all of its contents skittering across the glossy floor of Heathrow International Airport.

    My first line is from an old book that, although I don’t have it’s publication date, it was a present in 1908 to someone. “It appears to me, looking back over a past experience, that certain days in one’s life stand out prominently as landmarks, when we arrive at some finger-post pointing out the road that we should follow.” But my very favorite line is: “The heart knoweth its own bitterness, Phoebe, and it may be that in your place I should fail utterly in patience; but if we will not lie still under His hand, & learn the lesson He would fain teach us, it may be that fresh trials may be sent to humble us.” from Uncle Max by Rosa Carey

    I’ve yet to read a book by Beth Wiseman. 🙂

    On my blog I shared my first line from the favorite, Pride and Prejudice. 😉
    “It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man, in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.”
