About the Book

Spitalfields, London’s East End, 1871

For one blessed moment I was beautiful.

I am SO excited to read Finding Lady Enderly. This will be my very first read of this author’s works, and I just cannot wait to get to it. What a brilliant first line, don’t you think?

  1. Natasha’s velvety voice drifted up the stairs. I clenched my teeth at the sound.

  2. I’ve never read anything by this author, either, but this book looks wonderful! That is a great first line! 🙂

    Today on my blog I’m sharing the first few lines from An Informal Affair by Heather Gray, which is the book I am currently reading. I’m on chapter 17 so I’ll share that chapter’s first line here. “Lia awoke to sunshine and blue skies.”

    I hope you have a nice weekend!

  3. Well, Nicole, I seems we are synced again! That was my first line, too! I finished the book minutes ago. I love Joanna’s writing. I love the lines at the beginning of each chapter from “Diary of a Substitute Countess” you could use them as devotionals! : “ I never needed a new identity- just a better understanding of the one who gave it to me.” This book was mesmerizing! It reminded me of Jessica Dotta’s trilogy The Price Of Privilege, which I have been missing.
    Happy reading!

  4. It’s definitely a great first line. On my blog, I’m featuring The Trail Boss’s Bride by Erica Vetsch. Since it’s my current read, I’ll share the first line from Chapter 9. “Kitty had never seen so much rain.” I hope you will have a wonderful weekend.

  5. Can’t wait to see your review 🙂
    Today on my blog I shared the first line from King’s Shadow by Angela Hunt but it’s also my current read so I’ll share the first line from chapter 23 here: “Anyone who studied Herod in the days following Aristobulus’s death would not doubt his deep and sincere grief.” Happy reading!

  6. Happy Friday!

    On my blog, I shared the first couple of lines of a book I recently finished – The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang. Here, though, I’ll be sharing the first lines of one of the books I’m currently reading – Wild Savage Stars by Kristina Perez.

    “The waves mocked her.

    Discordant laughter swelled in Branwen’s mind and twisted her heart. She couldn’t remain on the ship one moment longer. Her skin itched.”

    Wild Savage Stars is the sequel to Kristina Perez’s Sweet Black Waves, which is a Tristan & Eseult retelling. I’m enjoying it so far and I hope you liked the first few lines I shared.

    Hope you have a great weekend!
