First Line Fridays # 12🍀: “The Distant Tide” (Special St. Patrick’s Day Edition)

It’s time for a new edition of First Line Fridays hosted by the Hoarding Books blog!20171006_010334.jpg

Welcome to the special St. Patrick’s Day edition of First Line Friday! In honor of all things Irish, we’re sharing lines from stories related to that culture and heritage. I’ve chosen the first line from The Distant Tide by Heather Day Gilbert, the first novella in The Message in a Bottle Romance Collection. The collection begins in medieval Ireland and traverses water and land to end in Industrial era California. I ❤ it!

First Line:

Ciar’s Kingdom, Ireland

1170 AD

The skies were as unsettled as her own future. Swirling mountain breezes billowed through Britta’s narrow castle window, carrying with them the unmistakable tang of a storm.
