  1. Oh, this story is sooo good!! I loved it!
    Over on my blog, I'm sharing the first line from A Reluctant Bride by Jody Hedlund. Here I'll share with you the first line from chapter 4 of the same book.
    "Mercy stood in the long line of tenants waiting for a turn at the water spigot at the back of the building."

  6. I recently read that one as well. Hope you enjoy!
    Today on my blog I featured A Reluctant Bride by Jody Hedlund which I just finished last night. My next read is going to be Where Hope Begins by Catherine West so I'll share that first line here: "My husband is leaving me." I think I'm in for an intense read! Hope you have a wonderful weekend with some quality reading time :)

    "Mary Katherine Ropp stood motionless in the middle of her kitchen, a platter holding a two-layer German chocolate cake covered in whipped cream cheese frosting nestled in her hands."
