First Line Fridays: Ruby Moon by Jenny Knipfer

Happy Friday! 

First Line Fridays is hosted by Hoarding Books and participants share the first line from a nearby book.

Today, I'm sharing the first line from Ruby Moon by Jenny Knipfer.

"I see the moon, and I imagine the moon sees me -- every hidden part."

Have you read this novel? If not, check out the book blurb below and read my review here.

What are you reading this weekend? I'd love for you to share your book's first line!

Happy reading!

About the Book:


On the shores of Lake Superior in Ontario during the mid 1890's, Jenay, a young woman of mixed French and Ojibwe descent, must survive the trauma of causing a horrific accident.

Amidst this drama, Jenay is caught in a web spun by Renault, a rich, charming man who once threatened ruination of her father's shipping company but now seeks something even more valuable...
Jenay must find where her strength lies in order to face the challenges life brings her or be washed away like driftwood on the tumultuous shores of Lake Superior. 

Life's richest dramas are played out under the banner of two ruby colored moons and become the hidden gems which forge her into a mature strong woman. Jenay realizes God is by her side, using even the harsh events of life to create something precious in her.

  1. Happy Friday!

    That's a beautiful first line, and definitely has me intrigued.

    On my blog today, I'm sharing the first lines from Liz Johnson's A Dazzle of Diamonds:

    "Penelope Jean Hunter loved every wedding she'd ever been to. Except her own."

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend :)

    1. I have A Dazzle of Diamonds on my tbr and I'm looking forward to it! :)

  2. My first line is a long one from Chapter two of Vying for The Viscount by Kristi Hunter:
    Suffolk was as beautiful as his father had claimed, and the estate and stables were even grander than his grandfather had described in his letters, but no one had warned Hudson that the area was inhabited by crazed women.

    1. LOL! I have that one on the TBR and it sounds like it going to be lovely! Have a great weekend, Paula!

  3. Happy Friday!
    I'm currently reading The Crushing Depths by Dani Pettrey. I'm on chapter 41, so I'll share from there.
    "When Logan left to meet Bella Armstrong at a coffee shop and Emmy was engrossed in searching for answers on Rick Carson, Noah grabbed the folder Austin Kelly had given them and tucked it under his arm."
    Hope you have a relaxing weekend! 🙂❤📚

  4. I'm currently reading Love and a Little White Lie by Tammy L. Gray and the first line is "I've face-planted myself into rock bottom." I hope you have a great weekend!

  5. Happy Friday!!

    Over on my blog I shared the first line from Rocky Mountain Revenge by Rhonda Starnes "Grace Porter regretted she hadn't stopped for fuel before leaving Denver two hours ago, when it was still daylight."

    Have a lovely weekend!

  6. hmm, French and Ojibwe descent, sounds intriguing! Thanks for sharing
