First-Line Friday #168

The Thief of Blackfriars Lane

by Michelle Griep

April 1885 — London

For want of a properly working pocket watch, Jackson Forge failed to save the world today — or at least the City of London.

I love Jesus, my husband, and my daughter. I love reading and reviewing Christian fiction. And, I am a high school English teacher trying to get kids to fall in love with reading every day!

  1. They say you can’t go back, that it’s better to keep the past in the rearview mirror.

  2. I loved Blackfriars!

    My first line comes from Tidewater Bride by Laura Frantz
    James Towne, Virginia Colony. Spring 1634
    Alas, she was not a tobacco bride but she had been given charge of them.

  3. Happy New Year!
    The first line I shared this week is from The Dress Shop on King Street by Ashley Clark. I’m currently reading it too so I’ll share the first line from my current chapter (33) here: “The air was thick with humidity and the smells of birth as Millie came in and out of consciousness.” This book is amazing so far and is not very easy to put down at all. I have a pretty good feeling it’ll get finished tonight. Hope you have a wonderful weekend and happy reading!
