About the Book

Charing Cross Hospital, London, England, 1 February 1918

“A stranger stalking down the street shouldn’t make her hands tremble in anticipation. Arabelle Denler forced her breathing to calm, forced an easy smile to her lips for the soldier whose bandage she’d just changed, and stood with the old bandage balled up in her bowl.”

  1. “There is a razor-thin edge between justice and revenge, where the two easily blur left unchecked. Five years after her husband’s murder, Madison James was still trying to discover which side of the line she was on….” From THE ESCAPE by Lisa Harris. Coming from Revell on November 3, 2020.

  2. Happy Friday!
    This week on my blog I shared the first line from Backlash by Rachel Dylan but I’m currently reading Under the Tulip Tree by Michelle Shocklee so I’ll share the first line from my current chapter (22) here: “Jael arrived home. She had news.” Hope you have a good weekend with some quality reading time! 🙂

  3. Happy Friday! My first line is from “Once Upon an Irish Summer” by Wendy Wilson Spooner:

    “I watched her long red hair blow wildly about her frame as I shouted with all my strength, ‘Mary Ann! Step back!’ But she couldn’t hear my voice.”

    Lilian Blackwell held her breath and inched along the wall, praying with every footfall that Mama wouldn’t look up.

    1. I cannot wait to read this one. I’m just finishing up book 2 and I love it so much. I really love how Roseanna brings back past characters from other books. It really makes her fictional world seem so real! Thank you for sharing, Paula!
