First Line Friday – A Song Unheard

Winter is here! And here to stay…At least where I come from. I am looking forward to curling up with a good read and enjoying the snow…from inside my warm house, wrapped in a fuzzy WARM blanket…Drinking hot cider. I LOVE winter, but I do NOT like being cold. I am looking forward to reading this particular book over the upcoming weekend. What is on your TBR this winter?

Today’s first line is from…

A Song Unheard
by Roseanna M. White

London, England
September 28, 1914
The music seeped into her soul like fog over the Thames.

I don’t know about you, but I ADORE music! And this line makes me want to close my eyes and drink in the melodious sound drifting around her…*sigh*

  1. Loved A Song Unheard, because it features the cities where I was born and where my children were born (and because it’s a great story!).

    I’m sharing the first line from The View from Rainshadow Bay by Colleen Coble on my blog – another great romantic suspense novel. And I’m currently reading Missing Isaac, the brilliant debut from Valerie Fraser Luesse. Here’s the first line:

    A sleepy purple twilight wrapped around the farmhouse, its tall windows glowing with warmth from somewhere inside.


  2. This one’s next on my TBR!

    I’m featuring the first line from Susan May Warren’s “Troubled Waters” on my blog today, but right now I’m deep into “A Moonbow Night” by Laura Frantz:

    “What cannot be cured must be endured.”

    Have a great weekend 🙂


  3. Happy Friday!

    My First Line Friday comes from a book I’m reading now, Any Day Now by Robyn Carr.

    So, this is what a new life looks like. Sierra Jones opened her eyes on a sunny Colorado morning to that thought.

    Have a great weekend and stay warm!


  4. I’ve seen that book a few times and it looks very interesting.

    My first line is from the Christian Young Adult book Bubbly Schnitzel by Meg Gonzales.

    “Julia, this is a horrible idea.”


  5. This series is on my wish list! 🙂

    Adam Bryan pushed into the Magnolia Cafe and turned to wait for his younger sister Daisy. Second Chance Rose by Liz Talley (Christmas Roses by multiple authors)


  6. I can’t wait for my copy to arrive!!!

    I’m sharing about Until We Find Home by Cathy Gohlke on the blog today, but since it’s the closest book to me since it’s what I’m currently reading, I’ll share it here as well.

    May 1940

    Lightning crackled, splitting the night sky over Paris, illuminating letters painted on the bookstore window across the street: La Maison de Amis Livres. Driving rain pounded the loose shutters of Shakespeare and Company, making them rattle so that Claire Stewart dropped the heavy blackout curtain into place.

    Happy Friday!


  7. I’m reading a mainstream suspense at the moment, ARE YOU SLEEPING by my debut author friend Kathleen Barber. Here’s the first line: “Nothing good happens after midnight.” The good news is Reese Witherspoon picked up Kathleen’s book and is adapting it into a TV series starring Octavia Spencer. The bad news is I’ve run across a couple of words that made me cringe, but so far they have been very few and sporadic, so I just try to pretend I didn’t see them. 🙂


  8. Happy Friday! My first line(s) is from the Prologue in Susan May Warren’s new book Troubled Waters:

    “Oh, this was a bad idea. Epically, abysmally, horrendously bad.”


  9. I’m sharing the First Line from each novella in the Hearts Entwined collection.
    Claire Nevin frowned at the cheerful white clouds frolicking across the blue sky and tried to close her ears against the melodies the birds insisted on singing in response to the deceptively fine morning. (The Love Knot by Karen Witemeyer)
    Home. (The Tangled Ties That Bind by Mary Connealy
    I don’t want to die on an empty stomach. (Bound and Determined by Regina Jennings)
    The pounding of hammers above them ceased. (Tied and True by Melissa Jagears)


  10. I cannot wait to read this book!!!

    Today, I’m hosting Oath of Honor on my site. I just started it, so I’m only at chapter 3. So, here I will share the first couple of lines from that chapter.

    “‘Kevin!’ But with the doors shut and the windows up, he wouldn’t hear her whispered shout. She should have lied and said the place was covered in cameras.”


  11. I’m looking forward to reading this one soon!
    I’ll grab a book nearest me to share a first line (it’s one I’m hoping to read this year). From “The Outlaw Takes a Bride” by Susan Page Davis:
    Johnny Paynter slung his saddle over his chestnut gelding’s back.


  12. My book this week is “Life of Pi” by Yann Martel and the first Line is…
    “My suffering left me sad and gloomy.”
    Don’t worry, it gets happier from there!😊


  13. I am waiting for my copy of the book to arrive!

    My first line is from A Daring Sacrifice by Jody Hedlund (I got for Christmas but have not started reading it yet).

    ….Forests of Wessex In the year of our Lord 1390….
    “Time to chop off your thumbs.”

    Blessings, Tina
