First Line Friday

The title I’m featuring today is next on my TBR and I’ve had my eye on it for a while now. I actually scheduled the whole series for review just in time for the third book’s release next month! We’ll see if my scheduling skills are improving or if I’ll continue scrambling at the last minute for just the right words.

Irish Meadows by Susan Anne Mason

Irish Meadows by Susan Anne Mason

May 1911
Long Island, New York

“Late-afternoon shadows chased Gilbert Whelan up the long drive to the O’Leary mansion.”


So, open the book nearest to you and post the first line in a comment below!

  1. Hey Beth! This series is also in my TBR. Happy reading.

  3. I’m going to post the first line of the Audio book I just finished listening to: “Brithwin gazed at her father’s grey, lifeless face as she crossed the room.” From The Sword of Forgiveness by Debbie Lynn Costello and narrated by Anne Flosnik, who did a MARVELOUS job!!!

    1. I’m trying to do the audio book thing but I’m still not sold. I’m going to make note of that narrator though, I’ve heard the voice makes all the difference!

    1. Yes they are! I want them for my shelf but alas, the book budget bleeds. What would I do without the library? *shudders* Let’s not think such gloomy thoughts!

  4. What a beautiful cover! I’ll ahve to add this one to my TBR pile also! Do I need to start with book one?
    Now, as to your challenge … what if the book nearest me is a thesaurus? This could be interesting … If the preface counts as the first page: American thesauruses generally fall into two categories; the voluminous, subject-index variety and the brief, alphabetically arranged dictionary-style book.

    If the actual entries are considered the first page (which might be more fun): abandon v. desert, forsake, leave, quit, discontinue, desolate, drop, repudiate, reject, renounce … (and on, and on 😉 )

    An interesting thought just hit me, though–it almost seems fitting that desert means a dry, arid (and really harsh) environment and to be abandoned.

    1. I just finished it today and without reading the others, I’d say yes, start with the first one!
      LOL, a thesaurus is more interesting than a phone book or a dictionary! Thanks for stopping by, Jen!
