Welcome to First Line Friday,
hosted by Hoarding Books.
I first discovered my love of middle-brow fiction through a library e-book of D.E. (Dorothy Emily) Stevenson’s Miss Buncle’s Book, and have been wanting to read her Mrs. Tim Christie series ever since. Based on the author’s own diaries as an Army wife and first published in 1932, Hester’s diary promises to be interesting and amusing.
I’m 2 days in and already that promise is bearing fruit.
I’ll be reading this first Mrs. Tim book, which begins in January and ends in June, slowly over the course of the month, so I couldn’t resist sharing her first January line for this first First Line Friday of the year. Here it is:
Tim wakes up very peevish after last night’s celebrations in Mess (how strange the after effects of enjoyment on the human frame!).”
