First Line Friday - November 23, 2018



Welcome to First Line Friday hosted by Hoarding Books!  I hope you had a great Thanksgiving! I had lunch with a friend yesterday who loaned me the book I'm featuring today: The Wedding Dress by Rachel Hauck. She highly recommended it and I am excited to read it.



"'It was the breeze, a change in the texture of the unseen that made her look up and walk around a stand of shading beech trees."

Now it's your turn! Share the first line of the book closest to you in the comments below, then head over to Hoarding Books to see who else is sharing first lines on their blogs today.

  1. There is no escaping the dead. On the slender peninsula that is Charleston, we cannot help being surrounded by them, packed as they are into ancient cemeteries behind ornate iron fencing. Beneath our streets. And under our homes and parking garages.

  2. I love the beautiful cover!

    I posted about The Plum Blooms in Winter (Linda Thompson) on my blog.
    So, I'll share a line from a non-fiction book I am reading.

    `The Sparkle Effect` (Kristen Dalton Wolfe)

    Chapter 3 (page 15)

    "For the longest time, I didn't have a sense of style. I looked to other people and trends to decide what I should wear."

  4. Happy Friday! What a gorgeous cover!

    My first lines come from Hearts In Harmony by Beth Wiseman......

    I had never been to an Englisch funeral before today. I’ve only been to one funeral , when Uncle John died last year. But I’m only ten so maybe that’s why. This funeral was different from Uncle John’s. There were a lot of flowers inside the church and people singing.

    Have an awesome weekend and happy reading!😊💕

  5. Happy Friday!
    On my blog this week I'm sharing the first line from The Mayflower Bride by Kimberley Woodhouse but I'm currently reading the Amish Midwife's secret by Rachel J Good so I'll share the line from my current chapter (10) here: "By the time Leah arrived at the Groffs', Sharon had already completed the checkup." Hope you have a wonderful weekend with plenty of quality reading time!

  6. LOVE this book!

    Happy Friday and Happy Weekend! My first line (and 3rd line because I love this line) is from “Reaching Her Heart” by Kimberly Rae Jordan:

    “Tristan Callaghan moved to the side of the long hallway to let a young couple pass, giving them a smile and a nod before continuing on… What on earth had possessed him to agree to teach Sunday School to seven and eight-year-old boys?”
