  1. From A LOVE RESTORED by Kelly Goshorn: “Land sakes it was hot. Ruth Ann Sutton peeled the black stockings from her legs and stuffed them inside her boots. If only she could do the same with her insufferable corset.” (Set in Loudon County, VA in 1873)

  2. My first line this week is from When The Meadow Blooms by Ann Gabhart:
    February 27, 1925
    “You will never be completely well. Tuberculosis leaves it’s mark on your lungs.”

    Happy reading!

  3. I’d like to read Willow! I just started At Love’s Bidding by Regina Jennings and the first line is: “Behind the massive marble building where even in May the crisp sea air never chased away the odors ground unto the cobblestone, the newsboys and shoe-shinners gathered, waiting in her.”

    I hope you have a great weekend!

  4. From ALL THAT FILLS US by Autumn Lytle: “The worst part of regaining consciousness was the slow and unavoidable realization that the life I was waking up to was hardly worth the effort.”
