#FirstLineFridays: Christmas At Carnton by Tamera Alexander

Posted 22 December, 2017 by Molly(Cover To Cover Cafe) in #FirstLineFridays, Weekly Memes / 5 Comments

Welcome to First Line Fridays. What is First Line Fridays?? It’s where we share the first line only of a book we are currently reading, or one that is on our shelves. This week’s first is from For Love Of Liberty by Julie Lessman.

Here is the first line:
NOVEMBER 13,1863

“Very nice stitching, Mrs. Prescott.”

I love this cover! It’s the simplicity that catches me with it. I would love to live here. How about you? 

What’s your first line? Leave me a comment below and then visit the home of First Line Fridays at Hoarding Books to see all the other awesome participants.

  1. You’re right. That is a beautiful cover!

    My first line comes from Deborah Raney’s Circle of Blessings:

    Dakota Territory, 1864

    It was almost closing time, and in all of his seventeen years, James Collingwood could not remember being so bone-weary as he felt tonight.

    Merry Christmas!

  2. Yes, it’s a beautiful cover. I love the look of snow, but I don’t much like the cold.

    I’m sharing from All is Bright by Andrea Grigg over on my blog, a wonderful novella set in Australia … which means a summer Christmas (FYI, that’s normal for me. Not so normal for most of you, or for my Icelandic pastor and his family.)

    I’m currently reading A Sweethaven Christmas by Courtney Walsh, an new favourite author. Here’s the first line:

    “Why is that woman staring over here?” Lila shifted in the tall-backed linen-covered chair and nodded towards a blonde woman at the bar.

    I suspect this is going to be more than a Christmas story …

    Blessings as you celebrate the birth of our Saviour this week!

    Wouldn’t mind someone courting me from that balcony from the book cover. Lol

    My line is from: The Gathering (Darkness Rising Book 1)
    by Kelley Armstrong

    “Serena stood on the rock ledge twenty feet above the lake, singing in a voice known to bring tears to the eyes of everyone who heard it.”
