First Line Fridays - Week Fifteen & Giveaway

Friday, August 5, 2016

Welcome back to First Line Fridays! This summer is FLYING by so fast! I can not believe it is already Friday again! I am so blessed to have out of town family visiting this week. Much excitement, crazies, and shenanigans will be taking place! 

My line today is from a series by Carrie Turansky that I have been LONGING to read! I finally started it and I can't put it down! If you like Downton Abbey you will definitely enjoy The Governess of Highland Hall! A beautiful story set in the Edwardian era. Happy reading and may the rest of your summer be filled with blessings!

"Julia Foster lifted her gaze to the clear October sky as a lark swooped past."

What is your first line??? Also, be sure you head over to these blogs for more first line fun!

Another wonderful series that is set in the Edwardian era is Pepper Basham's Penned in Time. We are currently having a wonderful scavenger blog hop and GIVEAWAY...Happening NOW!!! Click on the picture below to find out more about the PINNED IN TIME Blog Hop.


  1. "Death hovered in the shadows of the room, a shapeless presence as familiar to Ashleigh Dougall as the scent of morphine." The Thornbearer by Pepper Basham.
    That is the first line of the Prologue.
    The first line of Chapter 1 is equally great: "There is a distinct difference between marrying a man you do not love, and falling in love with a man you cannot marry."

    1. Ahhhhh I JUST started this book last night! LOVE!

  2. yay for Fridays!!! My first line currently is from Susan Sleeman's book Silent Sabotage - "The scream was high and sharp, and Emily felt her aunt Birdie's scream to her core."

  3. "The day before an arsonist set my house on fire, I had a long list of things to do." ~ The Pug List by Alison Hodgson

    I have not read your book either. It sounds good and I really want to read it. It has been on my TBR list for awhile - too many books/ too little time! :D

    1. #bookbloggerlife Really is very good! Worth it for sure.

  4. LOVE Carrie's books. So fun to see it here!!

    There was something fascinating about the rhythm of writing, at least when someone else was doing it.
    ~An Elegant Facade (Hawthorne House #2) by Kristi Ann Hunter

  5. Carrie's books have been on my list for a while too!
    New to me author who contacted me for a review knocked my socks off this week!
    Tensaw Settlements, present-day Alabama
    Blackberry Moon (June) 1813
    From inside the cool, shadowy wood, Totka Lawe squinted into a bright meadow.
    From Beneath the Blackberry Moon: The Red Feather by April Gardner. Lori Benton/Laura Frantz quality! I can't wait to read the next book!

    1. Hmmm...I have not heard of this one but sounds really good!

  6. Can't wait to read "The Governess of Highland Hall ". My first line is:"Come on. Do the right thing - again," Savannah Webb muttered. From "Cracked to Death" by Cheryl Hollon.

  7. The Governess of Highland Hall is in my TBR.

    He only needed to survive one more day. Then he’d be home…back on US soil.
    Bridge of Faith by Catherine West


    1. I am so glad I finally read it! Happy Monday teehee...

  8. Thank you all for participating in First Line Friday...I apologize for my delayed replies. We have been having too much fun with out of town family this week!
