First Line Friday - Little Women

Thursday, May 9, 2019

Happy Friday & Mother's Day Weekend!

Today I have received the BEST Mother's Day present...EVER. The husband has taken the kids and the dog to spend the day with the grandparents. And I am left in sweet silence! In honor of Mother's Day this week, I am sharing one of my all-time favorite literary mothers...

Happy Reading!

Today’s first line is from...

Little Women
Louisa May Alcott

"She's coming! Strike up, Beth! Open the door, Amy! Three cheers for Marmee!" cried Jo, prancing about while Meg went to conduct Mother to the seat of honor.

Who is one of your favorite literary mothers?

Head over to Hoarding Books to link up with your own FLF post! (Please keep it family 
friendly...Or note otherwise in the link up)


  1. My first line -
    One minute Olivia DeWitt was happily steering her car up the hill towards home, the next minute she was headed for the ditch.

  2. Here is the first line from Lori Benton's upcoming release, The King's Mercy. "Alex McKinnon roused to the press wood beneath his cheek and an ominous churning in his gut."

    Have a great day!

  3. Over on my blog, I'm sharing the first line from Sherrinda Ketchersid's debut novel "Lord of Her Heart". Here I'll share the first line from chapter 11 of the same book.
    "Tension filled the air as servants jostled each other in a frantic pace to prepare meals for those at the tournament."

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  4. Classic!
    Today I shared the first line from Wooing Cadie McCaffrey by Bethany Turner but it's also the book I'm about to dig into so I don't have an extra line at the moment to share. Have a great weekend!

  5. Oh I love Marmee!!! The first line from my current read, The Highest of Hopes by Susan Anne Mason is:
    "There was no turning back now!"

  6. This makes me want to read Little Women! Today I'm sharing the first line from The Brave Art of Motherhood by Rachel Marie Martin:

    "Over the past five years, I've lived what I've jokingly called a public private life."

  7. Enjoy your time!!!! ONE of my favorite literary mothers is Ingrid Christiansen from Susan May Warren's series.

    Right now, I'm reading Sweet On You by Becky Wade, first line: Five hundred and eleven days had passed since he'd seen her last.

  8. The quote I'm sharing on my blog today is from the novella collection An Amish Reunion. This is the first line from page 81 of my current read, Who I Am With You by Robin Lee Hatcher:

    "Ignorance, Ridley discovered, isn't bliss."

    Have a great weekend!

  9. Great minds think alike! I picked this book for this week too! :) One of my very favorite books...happy reading!
