First Line Fridays: To The Farthest Shores by Elizabeth Camden


Hey Loves! I’m starting something new on the blog and teaming up with several bloggers for First Line Fridays!

Starting this Friday, we’re going to grab the closest book to you and leave a comment with the first line.

The book I’m featuring today is To the Farthest Shores by Elizabeth Camden.


And the first line is:

U.S. Army Base At The Presidio
San Francisco, 1898

Jenny Bennett woke as pebbles clattered against the window.”

Hmmm..I wonder what that’s about. Can’t wait to read this one!

  1. I have read this. It wasn’t my favourite Elizabeth Camden novel (that would be the one with the librarian, of course), but it was still intriguing. I love the way she builds her stories around events that aren’t so well known.

    I’m currently reading A Name Unknown by Roseanna M White, another of my favourite historical fiction authors. Here’s the first line:

    “Rosemary Gresham may have been a thief, but she was a thief who preferred to work in broad daylight.”

  2. Happy Friday! My first line (actually first 3 lines) is from His Secret Alaskan Heiress by Belle Calhoune:
    ” ‘Here it is. Fresh out of the oven. One reindeer pizza with feta and spinach,’ Sophie announced in a chirpy voice as she set the order down in the middle of the table.”

  3. I have read a few books by Elizabeth, need to get this one though! My Kindle is closest to me right now and the first book on it is Counted with the Stars by Connilyn Cossette, “My Sandals have not crossed this threshold since I was ten.”
