About the Book

Lachine, Island of Montreal, Quebec

Late August 1759

Catherine Duval was used to waiting.

I just started reading this book and I already love it! It is so engaging, and the writing is so stellar I feel like I am walking right next to Catherine as she goes about her adventure. I can already say that I highly recommend this book. 😉

Check back on release day, February 5th, for my review of this fantastic novel!

    Happy Friday! My first line is from “Liza’s Second Chance” by Molly Jebber:

    “Liza Schrock clenched her teeth and dug her fingers in the fresh dough in her Amish bakery.”

    Just got that one in the mail and it’s waiting in line!!!!

    I’m reading The Curse of Misty Wayfair by Jaime Jo Wright:

    Pleasant Valley
    Northwoods of Wisconsin, 1908

    Melancholy was a condition of the spirit and the soul, but also of the mind. Still, she’d never seen melancholy claim the life and be the cause of a body laid to rest in permanent sleep.

    Have a great weekend!

    Loved this book! Hope you enjoy it!

    On my blog today I shared the first line from The Curse of Misty Wayfair by Jaime Jo Wright but I’m currently reading Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte so I’ll share the first line of my current chapter (11) here: “A new chapter in a novel is something like a new scene in a play; and when I draw up the curtain this time reader–you must fancy you see a room in the George Inn at Millcote, with such a large-figured papering on the walls as in rooms have; such a carpet, such furniture, such ornaments on the mantlepiece, such prints–including a portrait of George the Third and another of the Prince of Wales, and a representation of the death of Wolfe.” I honestly don’t know how I made it this far into my life without reading it! Hope you have a wonderful weekend with plenty of quality reading time! 🙂

    I’m looking forward to reading Between Two Shores! I’m sharing from Excellent Women by Barbara Pym today, but I haven’t started reading it yet, so here is a not-so-randomly chosen line from the first page:

    “I suppose an unmarried woman just over third, who lives alone and has no apparent ties, must expect to find herself involved or interested in other people’s business, and if she is also a clergyman’s daughter then one might really say that there is no hope for her.”

    Happy reading and have a wonderful weekend!
