Hello and good morning!
Welcome to First Line Fridays, hosted by Hoarding Books!
Fridays are my favorite day of the week because that means I get to see all of the wonderful first lines of the books you are sharing this week!
This week I happen to be sharing about a book that I literally just finished as I type this post.
The book I’m featuring is:
“The Weaver’s Daughter” by Sarah E. Ladd
I have yet to read a novel from Sarah E. Ladd that I have not enjoyed. This is probably one of my favorites so far. The book takes place during the early Industrial Revolution in England so it’s a little different from the typical Regency Eras. It also reminded me a lot of Elizabeth Gaskell’s “North & South“. Highly recommended for fans who enjoy that kind of read. I can’t wait to share my full review with you guys soon!
And the first line is:
Amberdale, West Riding
Alarm’s menacing sting pricked Kate Dearborne’s consciousness and hurried her steps. Clutching the note in hand, she climbed the wooden steps over the stone fence seperating Amberdale’s main road from the churchyard.
Hmm…Makes you want to know what’s she running from, doesn’t it?
