About the Book

September 1866

Watchfield House, Oxfordshire, England

A threading of voices spooled throughout the expansive chamber wherein we waited, voices so decently quiet as to be murmurs. All present quickened as lightening pierced the ground just outside the wide panel of windows, like a finger pointing deep within the earth. Perhaps it was the Lord’s way of informing us exactly where the soul of the recently departed had found its final resting place.

This will be my very first Sandra Byrd novel to read. I have heard so many good things already that I am very excited to dig in!

Check back soon for my review.

    That sounds wonderful! I haven’t read any of her books. Another one for the TBR pile!

    I’m featuring the first line from the current book I’m reading, The Unveiling by Tamara Leigh. I love medieval, especially if it a Christian book! The first line reads: “A nightmare seized him from sleep, turned around his throat, and filled his mouth so full he could not cry out.”

    It’s so good! So much action and adventure and romance. 🙂

      I need to read a novel by Tamara Leigh. She’s been recommended to me many times, but I just can’t seem to clear up my review schedule enough to get one of her books read. I need a vacation from my review schedule! LOL!

    Have a good weekend! My first line is from “Somewhere Beyond the Blue: Fun sixty-something romances” – the first one is “A TIME TO PUSH DAISIES” by Marion Ueckermann:

    “Caleb Blume shuffled outside onto the wooden deck of his posh Camps Bay apartment, feeling three decades older than his sixty-two years.”

    Happy Friday!🎃

    My first lines come from Winter Without You by Beth Good.

    Hannah thought it looked like the saddest house in the world, a slate-roofed Cornish monolith with dark windows for eyes, looming out at them from under November rain. Did houses have feelings , though? she wondered, studying it as they drew steadily closer. Could a house emote? Or was that all in the eyes of the beholder?

    Have a great weekend and happy reading!💕📚💕

    Happy Friday!
    On my blog this week I shared Uninvited by Lysa TerKeurst but I’m also currently reading Emerald Illusion by Jennifer Rodewald. I’m on chapter 12 so I’ll share the first line from there: “Clouds began to cloak the few stars that were determined to see light into the dreary hill country.” Hope you have a great weekend with plenty of reading!

    I loved Sandra’s book! So many things to discover and cherish. The first line I’m sharing is from Linda Rodante’s new release Warrior.

    Kati Walsh drove a gloved fist toward her opponent’s face, but Terry Johnson shot an arm up, blocked her punch, and danced backward, grinning.

    Time is one of the reasons I stopped reviewing. I felt pushed and unable to read a book of my choosing. I admire those who can read and review every week. You guys are awesome. Thank you for sharing your reviews so that we can choose our next read.

    Happy weekend!

    Loved that book, but you already know that. Here’s another one to love!
    I am sharing from Eternity Between Us by Stephenia McGee. I’ll give you the first line from the third chapter:
    The sound intensified, a keening wail that knifed through her very bones and caused them to quiver.
    Great Civil War book!

    That’s beautiful writing in just a few sentences. On my blog, I am featuring a book by Deeanne Gist, Fair Play. Here I will share from the book I’m currently reading, The Prisoner’s Wife by Susan Page Davis. I am sharing the first line from Chapter 12 since that’s where I’m at right now. “‘Why doesn’t he waken?’ Lucy asked her mother the next day.” I wish you a wonderful weekend with lots of reading time.
