First Line Fridays: A Name Unknown by Roseanna M. White


Hey There! It’s Friday, so we know what that means! It’s time for First Line Fridays!

Hope everyone has had a fabulous week whether it’s going back to school or getting back into the routine of things.

The book that I’m featuring today is: A Name Unknown by Roseanna M. White


I’m currently reading this and loving it! I have yet to read a novel from this author I have not enjoyed. This is a beautiful WWI that stands out from all the others. There are so many twists and turns that are unexpected. We get lots of history, romance, and even a little bit of the writing process. Super fun read that I highly recommend!

And the first line is:

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

  1. One of my favourite reads this year!

    I’ve got the first line from “Will Not See” by Chautona Havig over on my blog today. Since it’s the second book in the ‘Sight Unseen’ series, I thought I would share the first line (or two) from the first book in the series, “None So Blind”, here:

    “Her arm stretched out from beneath the covers. Later, she would admit that in that moment her world changed irrevocably.”

    Have a great weekend!

  3. Happy Friday! My first line is from Destitutio by Brett Armstrong, which I am excited to start reading:
    “The grisly, grey swirls churned up before Marcus, a thin mask to the merciless heat.”

  4. Roseanna White!!! Loved this book!!!! 🙂

    This weekend I’m reading Kim Vogel Sawyer’s “Bringing Maggie Home.” I’m a little over halfway and it’s such a GREAT read! Here’s the first line:
    Mid-July 1943
    “Hazel set a porcelain cup and saucer on the overturned apple crate in front of her little sister. ‘Madam, would you like cream and sugar in your tea?'”

  5. Happy Friday! I started three (!) new books last night, and the first line I’m sharing is from Pam Hillman’s The Promise of Breeze Hill:

    “Connor O’Shea braced his boots against the auction block and glared at the crowd gathered on the landing.”

  6. I really enjoyed reading Name Unknown! Such a fantastic book! I was talking about this book today with Joanna Davidson Politano. Her book “Lady Jayne Disappears” is coming out this Oct.
    My first line this week is from Vow Unbroken by Caryl McAdoo
    “He took the pinch of cotton Sue offered and rubbed it between his short, pudgy fingers.”

  7. Such a great book! Loved A Name Unknown.

    I’m currently in the middle of reading Rule of Law by Randy Singer. It’s not typically a genre (military/legal) I read, but it’s so engaging. Here’s the first line:

    “They descended like vultures from the C-17 transport plane, silhouettes against a quarter moon in a tar-black sky.”
