Many Sparrows

Jeremiah Ring had witnessed death as often as the next man on the Allegheny frontier, but in all his thirty years he had encountered no deaths more dismaying than those confronting him now.

  1. Great first line! I’ve read a lot of reviews of Lori Benton books, and they have all been raves. Another author I’ll have to check out.

    My first line today is from the book I’m currently reading, Embracing Hope by Janell Butler Wojtowicz:

    Drew McKinley twisted he gold wedding band around and around his finger then made a tight fist.

    I’m looking forward to reading it.

  2. I can’t wait to read this one!

    I’ve got the first line from Ronie Kendig’s “Crown of Souls” – Tox! 😍 – on my blog today, but I’m going to share the first line from the book I just finished reading, Tamera Alexander’s “To Wager Her Heart”:

    Alexandra Jamison had always wanted a sister.

  3. I’m reviewing this for a blog tour soon. Can’t wait to read this!

    I’m sharing about “The Day the Angels Fell” by Shawn Smucker on my blog today, but I’m going to share the first line from the book I’m currently reading, “Under Fire” by Linda Shenton Matchell.

    “Ruth Brown swiped the perspiration beads off her upper lip as her’s sister’s vacant coffin dropped into the ground with a dull thud.”

  4. Oooohhhh! Can’t wait to read that!

    Happy Friday! My first line (sorry but actually two lines) is from Outlaw Angel by Miralee Ferrell:

    “Angel Ramirez woke with a start, her heart pounding a rolling beat in her chest. Someone was in her room.”


  5. That is a great first line! And I love the cover!

    My first line is coming from the next book I’m hoping to read (okay, honest truth, I’ve already started it but have set it aside a week or two).
    “Joyanna Shein glanced at her parents. She knew there was something wrong…there had been something wrong for days.”
    A Question of Honor, by Jesseca Wheaton


  6. I am loving this book so much!
    I am currently reading Many Sparrows by Lori Benton right now! What an AMAZING book. My first line comes from chapter two:

    “Clare Margaret Inglesby, twenty-six years of age and eight months with child, wondered how she’d come to this: trapped in a jolting wagon advancing into perilous wilderness” (5).
