It’s Friday, and as we gear-up to enjoy a long weekend, let us not forget the reason we get to enjoy the long weekend. A time of remembrance of those who have given their lives in service of the United States of America. In the spirit of Memorial Day, I thought I’d share with you a WWII book from Sarah Sundin. It just so happens that the kindle version of this book is on sale on amazon!

Today’s feature book is: Anchor In The Storm by Sarah Sundin

  1. That’s a great first line! I have the first line from Teresa Tysinger’s upcoming release on my blog, but here I’m going to share the first line from ‘Nightshade’ by Ronie Kendig, in honour of its recent re-release:

    “Gut pressed to the spine of his Hayabusa, Max Jacobs bore down the mountainous two-lane road.”

  2. My first line comes from FIRSTBORN by Tosca Lee.

    Six weeks ago, I woke up in a cabin in the north woods of Maine with no memory of the last two years or any pertinent details of my life before.

    Happy Weekend and Happy Reading!

  3. Oh!! I’ve read this one! I really enjoyed it. 🙂

    This week, I’m trying to put some reading time into “The Memoirs of General William T. Sherman” (for research) and “Threads of Suspicion (by Dee Henderson–my first of hers to read).

  4. Happy Friday!! I bought that book a couple of weeks ago.
    My first line is from White by Denise Weimer: “The dream started the way Jennifer’s actual visit to the house at 104 Main Street, Hermon, had begun, on a road that hurtled past green fields & dust-blown wildflowers into forever, ending in a community time had forgotten.”

  5. Great book! I’m reading…

    The euphoria of winning a hard case vied in her thoughts with wondering what came next as Haden McCarthy left the Alexandria courthouse.

    Kansas, 1865
    Abigail Melton entered the kitchen to the sight of her mother slumped over the table, a telegram clutched in one hand.

    The fictional town of Turtle Springs lost almost all their men to the Civil War.

  7. On my blog is the first line from Irene Onorato’s upcoming release so I have decided to share the first line from a book that’s gotten buried on my kindle entitled Back Home Again by Melody Carlson.

    “Thin rays of afternoon sunlight filtered through the leaves of the old maple tree that dominated the front yard of the Howard family home.”

  8. What a great first line! I want to read, lol. 🙂

    Here’s mine from a book I just finished reading: Count Me in by Mikal Dawn.

    “The little hairs on the back of Allegra Spencer’s neck stood at attention.”
