First Line Friday - September 15, 2017

Happy Friday! I hope this finds you at the end of a great week. I am looking forward to a weekend with lots of reading.

My first line today is from The Pattern Artist by Nancy Moser. I think the historical details in this book are amazing! If you enjoy historical Christian romance, I recommend this book.



"Annie Wood! I demand you wipe that ridiculous smile off your face. Immediately."

Now it's your turn! Grab the book you are reading or that is closest to you and leave the first line in the comments then head over to the blogs listed below to see what others are sharing this week.

  1. As someone who used to make most of my own clothes (back in the day when I actually had the time!) I'm sure I'd find the historical detail very interesting!

    I've got the first line from Janet Ferguson's new release, Magnolia Storms, on my blog today, but I'm going to share the first line from my current read: Many Sparrows, by Lori Benton (Oh. My. Word! ❤️ )

    "Jeremiah Ring had witnessed death as often as the next man on the Allegheny frontier, but in all his thirty years he had encountered no deaths more dismaying than those confronting him now."

    It feels wrong, somehow, to follow that up with 'have a good weekend', but I hope you do! 🙂

  2. Happy Friday Ellie! I love historical fiction, and I actually have this book in my library, but have yet to read it. It looks like a wonderful book though. :)

  3. Happy Friday! My first line is from A Christmas to Remember by Linda Brooks Davis:

    1908 4 days until Christmas
    "The line of delicate stitches blurred to a crimson smudge."

  4. Oh I want to read this one now. Thanks for sharing!

    Also, I'm not sure if I officially welcomed you to the team or not. Last week was a bit of a mess due to Hurricane Irma. Welcome to this super small group! :)

    I'm sharing about "The League and the Lantern" by Brian Wells over at my blog today, but the closest book to me (which is on my Kindle at the moment) is "All of You" by Sarah Monzon.

    Present Day, 100 Miles off the Coast of Virginia

    Lieutenant Michael "Finch" Carrington pulled up the zipper of his green flight suit and stared at the mass on the opposite rack.

  5. Oh, this is a great book! I read this one earlier this year. Reading this I had fun memories of picking out dress patterns with my mother. It gave me a new appreciation for all the work that went into creating those patterns to begin with.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  6. A Secret Courage by Tricia Goyer :
    October 15, 1940
    Will Fleming sprinted down the street. The soles of his black Oxfords pounded the cobblestones, yet his footfalls went unheard over the air raid siren’s howl.

  7. I used to make a lot of my own clothes, but always off patterns. It's fun, but time-consuming.

    I'm sharing from Jewel of the Stars by Adam David Collings on my blog today, but I'm currently reading Uncharted Hope by Keely Brooke Keith. Here's the first line:

    At half past nine, boots scuffed the pavestones outside the medical cottage, followed by a rapid-fire knock.

    I'm looking forward to reading it!

  8. This one looks interesting ~ I love learning about less-known parts of history (like pattern-makers :-) ) through fiction.
    Happy Friday!

  10. Right now, I'm reading Love Held Captive by Shelley Shepard Gray. It's the final novel in the Lone Star Hero trilogy. The first line is:

    "There was almost nothing there. Almost."
