My name is Chiara and I am a Bookworm.
So … the past few weeks I have been doing First Lines Friday. Hopefully you were enjoying them as much as I was.
This week’s first line is …
About thirty years ago, Miss Maria Ward, of Huntingdon, with only seven thousand pounds, had the good luck to captivate Sir Thomas Bertram, of Mansfield Park, in the county of Northampton, and to be thereby raised to the rank of a baronet’s lady, with all the comforts and consequences of an handsome house and large income.I think this is pretty obvious, but have you guessed yet?
This first line hails from Mansfield Park by Jane Austen.
