First Line Fridays: A Letter from Lancaster County by Kate Lloyd


Welcome to First Line Fridays, hosted by Hoarding Books!!!

Can you believe it’s Friday already? Where did the time go!?

Since it’s Friday, it’s time to grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first line.

The book I’m featuring today is:

A Letter from Lancaster County by Kate Lloyd


This is a book that is on my TBR shelf. Hopefully, I’ll be reading it soon. I’ve heard a ton of great things regarding this book. The paperback is currently on sale for $3.17 on Amazon Prime.

And the first line is:


Silvia Donato’s hand shook as she put her pen’s tip to the stationary. She hesitated, but then prodded herself no matter how much her fingers ached.

Let me know your first line in the comments & then head over to Hoarding Books to see who else is participating! Join us too!

  1. I can’t wait to read that one!

    Happy Friday Becky!

    My First Line Friday comes from a book I will be reading later this month, The Upside of Falling Down by Rebekah Crane….

    I was born twice. The first time was on July 9 to Paul and Mimi Haas in Cleveland, Ohio. My mother died six years later.

    Have a great weekend and stay warm!

    I’ll share the first line from the next book on my TBR list: Until We Find Home by Cathy Gohlke: Lightning crackled, splitting the night sky over Paris, illuminating letters painted on the bookstore window across the street: La Maison des Amis des Livre.

    Night crept over the hills, smothering the landscape in a cocoon of darkness that would hide him in a few minutes. – Haven of Swans by Colleen Coble

    • I need to read this and such a great first line. Funny thing is, I have a bag of unopened marshmallows because I’ve been snacking on smores. Have a great weekend Nicole!

  5. I love these Fridays & reading the first lines from all these books I’ve either enjoyed or want to read!

    My first line is from Rush by Jayme Mansfield:

    “I can’t stop shivering when I sleep alone.”

  6. My first line today is from Robin Lee Hatcher’s You’ll think of Me. I’m reading it now and I have trouble putting it down! “Brooklyn Myers sat on the narrow stretch of lawn beside the brick apartment building, watching her ten-year-old daughter.”
