  3. My first line is from STORIES THAT BIND US by Susie Finkbeiner

    My Norman had never understood why I liked to hang laundry on the line when I had a perfectly good dryer inside.

    The King’s Mercy was fantastic!

  4. Happy Friday! On my blog, I’m featuring Gods at War by Kyle Idleman. Here, I will share the first line from Chapter 25 from my current read, Nathan’s Nurse, by Zina Abbott. “December 30, 1881. The strap of his tow sack full of clean and mended clothes pressing on his shoulder, Nathan maneuvered his way along the path in the snow beaten down by the men traveling from their homes in the married miners’ housing to their jobs at the mine.” I hope you will enjoy a relaxing weekend.

  5. Happy Friday!
    Today on my blog I shared the first line from The Comparison Girl by Shannon Popkin but I’m currently reading The Way of Love by Tracie Peterson so I’ll share the first line from my current chapter (5) here: “Mrs. Weaver joined the boardinghouse residents for breakfast the next morning.” Hope you have a great weekend!

  6. Sounds ominous!

    My first line comes from Game Changer by Kelly Jamieson

    “What are you looking for in a relationship?”

    It’s the question every man with a commitment phobia is terrified of! Happy Reading!
