FLF- St Patrick

Today First Line Friday is honouring St Patrick’s day . Our first lines are based on Ireland, and by sheer good chance one of the books I had requested from the library finally found its way to me this week, and is set in Dublin by an Irish writer.

And the first line reads “The tide is coming in; familiar sights and sounds seem strange to me. ”

You really need the next line to understand a bit more- ” My seven-year-old legs wobble,feet sinking into the sand, seaweed between my toes”.

I feel sure I am in for a most enjoyable read, of a book that came recommended to me via this blog. Have you read it?

Please visit the other First Line Friday bloggers- link here  and do please leave a first line of your own in the comments.

    My first line is from Woman of Sunlight by Mary Connealy.
    November 1873 Hope Mountain, Near Bucksnort, near Grizzly Peak, Colorado

    “You look awful.” Mitch Warden poured himself a cup of coffee and studied Ilsa Nordegren’s face as she stepped into the kitchen.

  2. Happy Friday! This sounds like an interesting read. I’m sharing from The Outlaw’s Daughter by Margaret Brownley today. Here is the first line of chapter 16:

    “The house was small and sparsely furnished but had a warm, homey feeling that filled Matt with an unfamiliar longing.”

    Have a great weekend!

  3. Happy Friday!
    Today I’m sharing from Sand Creek Serenade by Jennifer Uhlarik: https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2020/03/13/first-line-friday-127/. I’m currently on chapter 10, so I’ll share a line from there.
    “Five Kills tried to work moisture into his dry throat.”
    Hope you have a great weekend. Happy reading! 🙂❤📖

  4. Happy Friday! Today, I’m sharing the first line from Like Flames in the Night by Connilyn Cossette: “Nothing would stop me from claiming this victory.”


  5. I have read it but not really my style but would recommend it.
    Although a slightly early Happy St. Patrick’s Day. Beannachtaí na Féile Phádraig ort.

    I haven’t read this one – another for my list:)

  7. It does sound interesting… but our library doesn’t have it so I’ve downloaded a preview. Thank you for the reference, and reminder that St. Patrick’s Day is next week! ☘️

  8. Sounds good so far 😊
