Welcome to another edition of First Line Friday! What is your first line? What are you reading? Let me know in the comments.

About the book:

When a series of circumstances beyond her control leave Rosalyn Bernay alone and penniless in London, she chances upon a job backstage at a theater which is presenting the most popular show in London. A talented musician and singer, she feels immediately at home and soon becomes enthralled with the idea of pursuing a career on the stage.
An injury during a skirmish in India has forced Nate Moran out of the army until he recovers. Filling his time at a stable of horses for hire in London, he has also spent the past two months working nights as a stagehand, filling in for his injured brother. Although he’s glad he can help his family through a tough time, he is counting the days until he can rejoin his regiment. London holds bitter memories for him that he is anxious to escape. But then he meets the beautiful woman who has found a new lease on life in the very place Nate can’t wait to leave behind.

First Line:

Six Years Later
October 1879

Rosalyn crouched as low as her sturdy walking gown would allow, hiding behind the hedgerow. When she left the orphanage to begin her life as an adult, she'd anticipated some hard times.
