    Happy Friday!

    Today I am sharing the first two lines from The Highest of Hopes by Susan Anne Mason on my blog: https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2019/03/29/first-line-friday-81/. Currently, I am reading A Silken Thread by Kim Vogel Sawyer, so I will share a line from that book here.

    “Willie carried two steaming bowls to the scarred table in the corner of the small kitchen.”

    Hope your weekend is a good one. Happy reading! 🙂💚📚

    Happy Friday! My first line is from “Remember Me” by Marion Ueckermann:

    “Seated cross-legged on the floor of her bedroom with her two best friends, Clarise Aylward leaned forward and lit the candles on the birthday cake her mom had made for them.

    Great line!

    My First Line is, “The wail of a ship’s whistle jerked Anna Wilson from sleep despite the cotton wadding she’d shoved in her ears before bed.”

    This is from The Great Lakes Lighthouse Brides Collection by multiple authors.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    Blessings~ 💖

    I shared from Glory Road by Lauren Denton on my blog. Here is the first line of another book in my TBR stack, The Governess of Penwythe Hall. “A biting gust of Cornish wind screamed downward from the churning sky, billowing Cordelia Greythorne’s jet-black traveling cape.

    Have a great weekend!

    I haven’t read The Girl on the Train but enjoyed the movie. But it was one of only two novels my husband read last year, which says a lot about Paula Hawkins. I’ll have to check it out.

    I’m sharing the first line from A Hero for Miss Hatherleigh by Australian author Carolyn Miller on my blog today. I’m currently up to Chapter Seven, and here’s the first line:

    The next time at services Caroline did her best to recall why she attended, to fix her thoughts on the service and not on the gentleman seated two rows behind her on her left.

    Happy reading!
