First Line Friday - Miss Tavistock's Mistake by Linore Rose Burkhard

October 2, 2020


 Happy Friday and Happy October!! 

We spent our day at the farm on our first homeschool field trip of the year! It was the perfect start to our October. It was tons of fun filled with lots of activities and beautiful weather but this mama is tired!! I hope your Friday is going well. It's another First Line Friday hosted by Hoarding Books. Today my first line is coming from Miss Tavistock's Mistake by Linore Rose Burkhard. 


My First Line
(This is from the first chapter rather than the prologue..)

"Mrs. Filbert! Only guess what I have learned from my uncle!" Miss Tavistock, the nineteen year old orphaned ward of the Duke of Trent, rushed across the great library of Toadingham to where her companion, Mrs. Filbert, lay settled upon a settee amongst layers of pillows near the fire, sniffling and sneezing."

It's your turn! Grab the closest book to you 
and drop the first line in the comments!!

  2. Happy Friday!
    I'm sharing the first line from Storing Up Trouble by Jen Turano on my blog. I'm currently on chapter 22, so I'll share a line from there.
    "Before Norman could fully process the idea of a giggling Theo, Stanley was escorting Theo into the room, beaming a bright smile at her, one she was certainly returning."
    I hope you have a great weekend. 🙂❤📚

    “The torrent swept away Lorena’s well-devised surprise into the muck.”
