First Line Friday is brought to you by Hoarding Books. Playing along is super easy. All you have to do is open the book nearest you and tell me what the first line is. Then check out the link to see the other first lines are offered up this week.
"Late in the evening of 1 January 1515 Mary Tudor became a widow when her husband, King Louis XII of France, died."
Full disclosure - Sarah is a friend of mine, and she was instrumental in encouraging me to start writing my own book about Eleanor of Aquitaine.
I really enjoy Sarah's books. She is passionate about her subjects and treats them with the care they deserve.
