Favorite First Lines... A Cast of Stones

"Smells of earth and dung drifted slowly past the fog in Errol’s brain. His skin prickled with cold. Water and ooze soaked his threadbare garments and he shivered. Cruk had thrown him out of the tavern. Again."
 A Cast of Stones by Patrick Carr

Don't you just love it when a book draws you in from the very first lines? That's what Patrick Carr did with A Cast of Stones and countless other authors have done as well.  I had to know what on earth had just happened.  So I read another line and another and another until he had me hook, line, and sinker.

What are some of your favorite first lines?

Happy at Home

Hello! I love it when you all talk back!
Your comments have helped me through the hardest time of my life.
Thank you!

I read all the comments I receive. I answer as many as I can.

Right now, I am undergoing radiation treatments, healing from breast cancer surgery on October 20th, and dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy.

I'm having a hard time replying to all the comments. Please understand if I do not answer. This is all new to me.

I treasure your prayers and your comments.

If you have a question, or you need a response, be sure I can reach you by email or subscribe to the comments. I will try to answer each question and request. It just may take me some time.

Be blessed!
