First Line Fridays 35: Remember Me by Penelope Wilcock

Despite being so massively behind in my Goodreads challenge (4 books!), I am actually reading, and I have started a new audio book. I hope to catch up at some point, maybe when I'm back at work after the summer.

Since I've featured both the eBooks I am currently reading in previous posts, I will include the paperback I recently opened up here.

Remember Me is the sixth book the the Hawk and the Dove Series by British author Penelope Wilcock, set in and around a monastery in fourteenth century Yorkshire . I must admit I was not impressed by the last book, but I'm continuing the series, since I got three of the books free from the Publisher a few years ago. You can see the synopsis below.

Father William knew something was changing deep within him. He felt it—from his belly, from his from his heart, from his soul—the reality of what was streaming forth unchecked. There was no denying it. This was love.

Yet Father William has more to worry about than simply upholding his vows to God, to the brothers of St. Alcuin, and to Abbot John. The brotherhood is running out of money and Father William must decide whether or not to take matters into his own hands.

Seasoned author Penelope Wilcock unlocks the story of one man’s struggles, mistakes, and heart’s longings, and traces the possibility of what it means to get things wrong and to begin again. She helps us see the unexpected ways God often chooses to heal a broken life, revealing the heart of God to make us whole.

....and there is the graphic with the first line. I'm very pleased with he picture of a ruined monastery I found on Canva.

 Until next time, enjoy have a great week and happy reading. 
Don't forget to click the meme to see what other members are reading, or post your own first line. 



  1. Now there's a great first line!

    I just started "Nice to Come Home To" by Liz Flaherty. The first line is: Why didn't you ever come back here?

    Happy Friday!

    1. Its good isn't it. Yours is good too. Happy weekend.

  2. Happy Friday!

    I shared the first line of Veronica Roth's Carve the Mark on my blog today. Here, though, I'll share the book I've just started to read - A Touch of Gold by Annie Sullivan.

    "Once upon a time, a little girl helplessly watched as liquid gold spun a web across her tiny frame, racing to wrap her up in an icy cocoon."

    I hope you enjoyed that. Happy weekend and happy reading! ��

  3. Happy Friday!

    Ooh, intriguing first line!

    I’m reading Catch-22 by Joseph Heller right now, so here’s the first line: “It was love at first sight.”

  4. Happy Friday! My first line is from Love is Patient by Lila Diller:

    “I flipped through the pages of the bridal magazine yet again, from one dogeared page to the next, dreaming and desiring.”

  5. On my blog this week I am featuring “Saving Truth” by Abdu Murray, Finding Meaning & Clarity in a Post-Truth World. Since I am still currently reading this book, I will share the first two lines from Chapter 4. “History’s most influential person expressly binds freedom to the limits of truth. “You will know the truth,” Jesus says, “and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:32)” May your weekend be a refreshing one for you.

  6. Happy Friday!
    The book I shared on my blog this week is Auschwitz Lullaby but it's also what I just finished reading so I'll share my favorite quote from the book here: “Sometimes we have to lose everything to find what is most important. When life robs us of what we thought we could not live without and leaves us standing naked before reality, the essential things that had always been invisible take on their true value.” Hope you have a great weekend!

    1. Oh yes, I have heard of that book. It sounds very good. Happy weekend

  7. Now that's a first line!

    Over on my blog, I'm showcasing the first line from Carolyn Miller's new novel, Miss Serena's Secret. It's SO good. I'm almost finished with the book, so here I will share the first line of chapter 26.

    "I cannot help you."

    A bit blunt and harsh! Lol.
    I hope you're having an awesome weekend filled with great reading time. 😀❤📚

  8. I hope you are enjoying the book! I hope you can stop by:
