So I am opening up the book I have been reading this week, and going to the first chapter and finding the first line…

    The Newcomer
    by Suzanne Woods Fisher

    October 15, 1737

    “Bairn was suffocating. Not literally, mayhap, but as close as a man could get.”

    Happy reading and happy Friday!

  3. Sydney Anderson

    Near Medicine Bow, Wyoming 1892

    The squeal of the train wheels jerked Essie Vanderfair’s attention from the doodles and half-formed thoughts scribbled inside her notebook to the window beside her.

    ~The Outlaw’s Secret by Stacy Henrie

  4. Rachel

    Happy Friday Bree! Since I shared the first line of the Prologue on my blog, here is Chapter one. “Maggie turned the hat block and examined the broad-brimmed, yellow straw hat.”

  5. Becky Smith

    My first line is: ” “…for it is written: ‘It is mine to avenge; I will repay,’ says the Lord.” The words grabbed the man by the throat.” (I had to include that 2nd line!) from Moving Target by Lynette Eason

  6. Beth Erin

    Finished reading A Note Yet Unsung by Tamera Alexander

    Nashville, Tennessee
    January 12, 1871
    Rebekah Carrington stood shivering across the street from her childhood home, satchel heavy in hand, cloak dusted with snow.
