First Line Fridays - 2/24/17 - The Memory of You


Happy Friday!!!

Winter is beginning to fade around here. Although, I believe it will be quite a while before the snow is completely gone! However, I am not complaining. I have a whole list up of books lined up to read! I am super excited for the next few weeks! Coming up soon is a book that I have been looking forward to for quite a while.

  1. I can't wait to read this one!

    My first lines this week come from The Message in a Bottle Romance Collection:

    1170 AD, Ciar's Kingdom, Ireland
    The skies were as unsettled as her own future.

    1715, Argyllshire, Scotland
    "Are ye ready, miss?"
    Meg's stomach twisted at Mother Aila's question.

    June 1798, New York City
    Abigail Van de Klerk opened the door to the house she shared with her father on Pearl Street.

    July 6, 1864, Roswell, Georgia
    Water roared over the dam behind her, an echo of the blood rushing in her ears.

    Late June 1890, Coronado Island, California
    Cold water slid across his body, the dip and rise of the swell bringing challenge to his course.

  2. Sounds really good! My first line is: "The cheerful yellow house didn't look all that imposing as Silas Jones stood in front of its fence for the fourth time that day."

  3. Neat quote!

    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."

  4. Oh now I am wondering, who the character is and why they feel that way! Great choice. Here is mine:

  6. Happy Friday!

    My line is from "Women of the Twelfth Century" by Georges Duby. I cheated a little this week and included my first paragraph this time around.

    "Beneath the dome of the church at Fontevraud - in the twelfth century, one of the largest and most prestigious abbeys for women in France - one sees today four recumbent statues, the remains of old funerary monuments, Three of them are carved from soft limestone: that of Henry Plantagenet, count of Anjou and Maine through his father, duke of Normandy and king of England through his mother; that of his son and successor, Richard Coeur de Lion; and that of Isabella of Angouleme, second wife of John Lackland, Richard's brother, who became king in his turn in 1199. The fourth effigy, of painted wood, represents Eleanor, heiress to the duchy of Aquitaine, wife of Henry and mother of Richard and John; she died at Fontevraud, where she had finally taken the veil, on 31 March 1204."

    An Uncertain Choice

    Montfort Castle, Ashby
    In the year of our Lord 1390

    "My slippered feet slapped the dirt road, and my heart hammered aginst my chest like a battering ram."

    Happy reading and Happy Friday!

  11. 'And I sank down where I stood, and hid my face against the ground. I lay still a while; the night swept over the hill and over me and died moaning in the distance; the rain fell fast, wetting me afresh to the skin.'
