First Line Friday

The Captain’s Daughter

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

The Captain’s Daughter

London Beginnings

by Jennifer Delamere

This week's line is:

“I’m not surprised to find you here, Rosalyn Bernay said.”

I was literally swept away by this book, it is a first in a new series. Trust me you will be eager to join this delightful cast of characters on their story, the hardships, the faith and the love. It is five stars!

Now it's Your Turn

    Happy Friday!
    My first line is from Rediscovering Americanism by Mark R. Levin: “I often wonder what Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, James Madison, John Adams, George Mason, Benjamin Franklin, and the other Founders would think about today’s America.

  2. Trisha Robertson

    This book is on my #TBR stack!
    I borrowed my 9-year old son’s current read to share in the comments. This is a super fun mystery book for kids and one that’s been read more than once!

    Today I’m sharing the first line from “A Match Made in Alaska” over on my blog, but the first line I’m sharing here is from a book I recently finished, “Against the Tide” by Elizabeth Camden:

    Lydia was embarrassed to wear a damp dress on the first day of school, but it rained last night while her clothes were strung across the boat’s rigging to dry.
