About the Book

Winter 1808

Cornwall, Southwest England

A biting gust of Cornish wind screamed downward from the churning sky, billowing Cordelia Greythorne’s jet-black traveling cape. She reached to secure the hood atop her head, and as she did, her grip on her valise slackened. The heavy bag plummeted to the snow-laden ground below.

I’ve had those moments. Those moments when it seems like even the weather is against you. I can relate a little to Mrs. Greythorne. How about you?

    Sarah Jane Morgan gasped for breath, scanning the crowded pathways. Everyone showed up for the Heritage Festival, which was good for the artists and vendors, but bad for her. Especially considering…….

    Hi Nicole. I’ve been wanting to read Sarah’s books for a while! They are so pretty.
    My First Line is from A Reluctant Belle by Beth White:
    Prologue:
    June, 1860
    Tree limbs slapped Joelle’s face as she ran through the woods behind the bathhouse.
    Loved this second book in the Daughtry House series.
    Happy reading!

    Happy Friday! I’m currently reading Hello Again by Heather Tullis and the first line is “Piper listened as the Croods avoided being squashed or eaten by a bevy or prehistoric animals.” I’m about halfway through and enjoying it so far!

    Sarah Ladd does a great job with those opening lines. It pulls you right in. I’m currently reading A Chance at Forever by Melissa Jagears. I’ll share the first line from Chapter 28. “I’m sorry to interrupt.” Have a wonderful weekend!

    It’s times like that when I’m grateful for modern fashions like jeans!

    I’m sharing from Sing a New Song by Candee Fick on my blog, which is a fun contemporary romance. I’ve just started reading Across the Blue by Carrie Turansky, which is set in England in 1909. Here’s the first line:

    “Isabella Grayson’s shoes sank into the plush red carpet of Broadlands’ south hall, and she released a soft sigh. What luxury!”

    Its about the early days of aviation, and I’m enjoying it.
