First Line Friday #4-Jewel of the Nile

 First Line Friday is hosted by Hoarding Books

This week I am sharing from Jewel of the Nile by Tessa Afshar. This is the second book that I have read by her and I enjoy her writing. There is just an easy flow to her words and descriptions.

Jewel of the Nile

"He took one last aching look outside the crumbling window; the Nile was molten gold in the light of the rising sun, a sparkling coil winding its way into the horizon." 

Your turn! Grab the book nearest you and post the first line in the comments!

  1. My first line today is from On The Cliffs of Foxglove Manor by Jaime Jo Wright.
    “Your father is in a coma”

  2. Boy did I goof!
    Here’s the real quote from Foxglove Manor:
    “ He had ruined death for her, and the hope of it.”

    1. I have this on my TBR list, but have not managed to get a copy of it yet. I can't wait to read this one! I hope you enjoy it :)

  3. I'm just starting The Songstress by Lori Bates Wright so I'll share the first line from there.
    "President and Mrs. Lincoln finally arrived."
    Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Happy reading! 🙂❤📚

    1. I have not heard of this author or book, will have to check it out! Thanks for sharing. Have a great weekend :)
