First Line Friday – The Lady in Residence

Happy Friday, all! Have you checked out Barbour Publishing’s new Doors to the Past series? I’m about to dive into their February release, The Lady in Residence by Allison Pittman, so I’m sharing the first line with you today.

The tour ended where it began–in the courtyard of the Alamo, the fortress bathed in white light, flags snapping in the night sky.

  1. That was a great start to a new series! All dual time, can’t wait for the rest.

    My first line is from A Dance in Donegal by Jennifer Deibel.
    Boston. October 1920
    The grandfather clock downstairs chimed the hour, its clangs all too reminiscent of the funeral bells presiding over Mother’s funeral just yesterday morning.


  2. Happy Friday! My first line is from “Lacewood” by Jessica James:

    ” “Recalculating.” Katie McCain smacked the steering wheel with both hands and then glared at the navigation screen.”
