First Line Friday #168

First Line Friday is a weekly feature and simple to do - grab the book nearest you and post the first line. Carrie hosts this over on her blog Reading is my Superpower.

Sometimes events occur which are so sudden and so life-changing in their implications that they alter an entire society.

Happy Reading!


  1. Very true opening line. And it does make me want to see how the author proves the point for the rest of the book.

    1. Oh, absolutely. The entire face of Europe changed as a result, some places more quickly than others of course.

  2. Yeah, another one already on my Wish List!

    "The British people had lived with the knowledge of what war from the air might mean for a quarter of a century before the 1940 Blitz."

    'Battle of Britain' by Patrick Bishop.

  3. An interesting opening line 😊

    Have a great weekend!

  4. Happy Friday!
    I'm almost done with Calling on the Matchmaker by Jody Hedlund. I love this book!
    "He didn't know what to say, didn't want to probe, but he also didn't want to ignore her obvious distress. Rather than say the wrong thing, he stood silently and waited."
    Have a great weekend! 😀❤️📚
