Barclay Pearce shouldered his way through the mob, invisible.

I am so excited to read this book. I adore this series so much. Actually, I love everything that Roseanna writes because she is an AMAZING storyteller. An Hour Unspent is next up on my review schedule, and I cannot get to the book fast enough. 🙂 Definitely check back soon for my review of this novel. I am sure the book is excellent.

Hope you have a great weekend filled with fabulous reading time!!!

    I LOVE everything Roseanna writes too. She’s a talented author. 😀

    I’m sharing about “A Lady of a Thousand Treasures” by Sandra Byrd over at my blog, but I’m almost finished reading, “The Bullying Breakthrough” by Jonathan McKee. So my first line will come from there.

    It’s 6:37 a.m., and I haven’t slept for hours.
    This has been an emotional project for me, probably the toughest I’ve ever tackled. Not because the research has been any more burdensome or the topic more daunting, but because never have I heard so much anguish and hurt.

    Happy Friday! Hope you have a wonderful reading filled with lots of good books to enjoy. 😀

    Happy Friday!🍁🍁

    My first lines come from a book I’m very excited to be reading soon, Resistance Women by Jennifer Chiaverni……..

    The heavy iron doors open and for a moment Mildred stands motionless and blinking in the sunlight, breathless from the sudden rush of cool, fresh air caressing her face and lifting her hair. The guard propels her forward into the prison yard, his grip painful and unyielding around her upper arm.

    Have a great weekend and happy reading!💕📚📖🍁

    My first line is from Anna’s Tower by Pegg Thomas. It is from the Barbour Collection, Great Lakes Lighthouse Brides.
    Thunder Bay Island, Lake Huron
    October 4, 1883
    The wail of a ship’s whistle jerked Anna Wilson from sleep despite the cotton wadding she’d shoved in her ears before bed.

    Loved this and ALL of Roseanna’s books!

    It was an awesome read I think you’ll enjoy it!
    This week on my blog I’m featuring Everything She Didn’t Say by Jane Kirkpatrick but it’s also the book I’m currently reading so I’ll share the first line from my current chapter (13) here: “Doing what I haven’t ever done before has become a kind of purpose for me.” Hope you have a great weekend with plenty of quality reading time!

    I love the cover of this book. Great intro!

    This week I shared from The Storm-Tossed Family (Russell Moore)
    So here I’ll share from my next book Basics for Believers (D.A. Carson)

    `The five chapters of this book provide an introduction to a letter the apostle Paul wrote to the Philippian Christians almost two thousand years ago.`

    Happy Friday! My first line is from “Oceans Apart” by Clare Revell, included in the set “Somewhere Beyond the Blue”:

    “Oliver Voight checked his passport for the third time.”

    Happy Friday! I’m sharing from my current read, Temptation Rag by Elizabeth Hutchison Bernard. Here is a line from the top of page 9:

    “She thought she would never tire of watching him at the piano, his fingers caressing the keys, a look of such tenderness on his face as if he would gladly die for each and every note.”

    I know you’re going to enjoy An Hour Unspent!

    I’m featuring Pathway to Peace by Elizabeth Maddrey on my blog, and I’ve just picked up That’s When I Knew by Laurie Tomlinson. Here’s the first line:

    “Bless her heart. Chelsea Scott’s sales director had no idea what she was getting them into.”

    I’m guessing this is that Southern meaning of “bless her heart” which means anything but!
