Welcome to First Line Friday’s hosted by Hoarding Books.

Today I am excited to be featuring More Than Words Can Say by Karen Witemeyer. This story captivated my imagination and the delightful characters captured my heart. I found myself more than once laughing out loud, and talking to the book as if my new character friends could hear me. CLICK HERE to read my review!

  1. Loved Karen’s book! So much fun!

    My first line is from The Reluctant Bride by Jody Hedlund:
    London, England. May, 1862
    “Hang on a little longer, my lamb,” Mercy Wilkins shifted the listless infant in her arms without slowing her pace.

  2. This book sounds really good and I love the title. I’ll be adding it to my TBR list. I’m a little late. Busy day. On my blog, I’m featuring The Insanity of God by Nik Ripken. Here, I will share the first line from Chapter 19. “The authorities moved Dmitri a thousand kilometers away from his family and locked him in a prison.” I hope you will have a wonderful weekend.


  3. Happy Weekend! My first line is from “Cabbages and Kings: Reflections on Living Abundantly in Christ” by Dianne Barker:

    “I didn’t have an ordinary childhood and I didn’t have ordinary dreams.”


  4. Happy Friday! I’m sharing from an upcoming release today, Belinda Blake and the Snake in the Grass by Heather Day Gilbert. Here is the first line from Chapter 2:

    “The first person I saw was Jacques, who was driving a lawnmower directly up an incline that made me hold my breath for his safety.”


  5. I really enjoyed this one I hope you do too!

    Sorry I’m late coming around. My internet went down yesterday and it’s been mostly down since then. They’re sending someone out Monday to figure out what’s going on. On my blog this week I featured The Brides of Big Valley by Wanda, Jean, and Richelle Brunstetter but I am currently reading Tate by Susan May Warren so I’ll share the first line from chapter 4 here: “With one article of clothing, Glo became a new woman.” Hope you have a great weekend with plenty of reading time! 🙂
