      - The Common Law (ch. 1)
        [Books (First Lines)]

And now, above the roaring undertone of the cars, from far ahead floated back the treble bell-notes of the locomotive; there came a gritting vibration of the brakes; slowly, more slowly the cars glided to a creaking standstill beside a sun-scorched platform gay with the bright flutter of sunshades and summer gowns.
      - The Fighting Chance (ch. 1)
        [Books (First Lines)]

      - The Younger Set (ch. 1)
        [Books (First Lines)]
