First Line Fridays hosted by Hoarding Books

First Line Friday – Jewel of the Nile

You know those weeks where you get to the end of the week and you think, “Well, I made it to Friday”? That’s pretty much me this week. I don’t know about you, but I’m looking forward to the weekend.

I’m also looking forward to the release of Tessa Afshar’s newest biblical fiction release, coming out on 1 June 2021. Can you believe that’s only a couple of weeks away?! Anyway, I have the first line for you today to whet your appetite.

Hope you have a relaxing weekend!

Jewel of the Nile

Tessa Afshar


First Line

AD31 – He took one last aching look outside the crumbling window; the Nile was molten gold in the light of the rising sun, a sparkling coil winding its way into the horizon.

  1. Here is mine from the book Elatsoe:

    ELLIE BOUGHT THE LIFE-SIZED plastic skull at a garage sale (the goth neighbors were moving to Salem, and they could not fit an entire Halloween warehouse into their black van).


  2. My first line comes from Paint and Nectar by Ashley Clark:
    Three days ago, Lucy met Declan at her sister’s engagement party,. Two days ago, he called to ask her on a date.
