First Line Friday

First Line Friday | Week 69 | Ashmore by Angela Curtis

It’s First Line Friday! That means it’s time to pick up the nearest book and quote the first line. Today I’m sharing from Ashmore by Angela Curtis:

First line from Ashmore by Angela Curtis: One half-witted decision changed Lillie Curtis' life forever. Unfortunately, that choice had not been her own.

Ashmore is the fictionalised story of the author’s ancestors and their voyage to New Zealand, based on a diary she found in the Auckland Museum.

What’s the book nearest you, and what’s the first line?

About Ashmore

Her greatest fear … is that she will live.
Her greatest triumph … is that she survived.

Lillie’s sheltered world is plunged into mayhem when she is forced to board the ASHMORE, a 219-foot sailing ship bound for New Zealand in 1882.

She must face and conquer the ruthless forces of both man and nature to survive the 103-day voyage. Only then will she be able to take control of her future and find her true destiny.

    I’m currently reading “From the Start” by Melissa Tagg and the first line is ” How in the world had rain earned such a romantic rep?” I hope you have a nice weekend!
