Far Side of the Sea: First Line Friday

Happy Friday, reader friends! As y’all might have noticed, I’ve been trying to plow through some of my tbr backlog lately and sadly that has meant passing up some new release opportunities (like today’s featured title, Far Side of the Sea by Kate Breslin, sob!). I have no doubt that today’s featured book will eventually make its way to my shelves but for now, I will just have to enjoy the story through those of you who are already reading it!

I’m also posting about Cover Judging on Seekerville today and come back here tomorrow for our newest edition of Cover Love! Check out the current giveaways (in the sidebar) and recent reviews then open the book nearest you and share the first line!

“How was the trip from Hastings?” Lord Walenford’s dark blue gaze studied him from across the small, linen-covered table.


Since this book was so popular last week, I thought I’d share the first line of Chapter Two this week! I don’t have to read this book to know that I would enthusiastically recommend it!

  1. I was going to share the first line from this marvelous book, too:
    To refresh your memory:
    Far Side of the Sea:

    He was suffocating.

    Trapped beneath several feet of earth, he tried to claw his way through the dirt and rubble to reach the blue sky above.


  2. Happy Friday and Weekend! My first line is from “Castle on the Rise” by Kristy Cambron:

    “Fairy-tale weddings never included rain on the guest list. Or snow – and they had both.”


  3. It was a nightmare.
    Lightning flashed across the black sky. Thunder boomed so close that vibrations shook the ground. Rain, mixed with pebble-sized hail, pelted the van’s window with enough force, it seemed the glass might now withstand the impact.
    ‘FIRE STORM” by Laura V. Hilton

  4. My first line is from On Magnolia Lane by Denise Hunter; Jack McReady had fallen in loe with Daisy in one-hour increments.

    Have a wonderful weekend!



  5. I’m sharing from Katherine Wentworth by D.E. Stevenson on my blog today. Here’s a semi-random sentence from the e-book page I’m on:

    “All around us were the rolling hills, one behind the other as far as eye could see; they were like huge green billows in a rough Atlantic gale, which had suddenly frozen into a state of immobility. Later they would be clad in heather, purple as the robes of a king.”

    Happy reading and have a wonderful Friday and Weekend!


  6. I have this one on my TBR hopefully I get to read it soon!

    Sorry I didn’t make it around earlier this weekend! This week on my blog I featured Night Road by Kristin Hannah but I’m currently reading Finally Accepted by Toni Shiloh. I’ll share the first line from my current chapter (6) here: “Chloe sat out on her apartment deck with a cup of herbal tea and her Bible.” Hope you had a great weekend!
