The Linen Queen by Patricia Falvey
"From Monday to Thursday we sang to break the monotony, on Friday we sang to celebrate"
This is just the beginning of a young girl from Northern Ireland working in a Linen Factory, and her dreams of her future in England. I am hooked. To me the characters are alive and vivid. I can't wait to see the challenges she will face.
We'd love to hear what's the first line - or paragraph - of your current read. Feel free to share it with us in the comments! Are you liking the book so far? Was the first few lines enough to grip your attention? We're looking forward to hearing from you! :-)
