Washington, DC

Dear Clara,

     I lied. I told myself I had run westward for the promise of big sky, and fertile soil. But the truth is, I just ran.

Hmm…Sure makes you want to know more! What is he running from, and will he find what he’s looking for?

  1. I’m intrigued by this book because it is about the dead letter office.

    I’m currently reading Andrew by Jennifer Beckstrand and LOVING IT! I loved the first line of chapter three so I’ll share that line. ” Alfie Benaiah Petersheim, get that cat off my table!”

  2. I am currently reading an ARC of The Bridge Between by Lindsey Brackett. Here’s the first line — She still had trouble sleeping.

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  3. Happy Friday! My first line is from “Kate’s Song” by Jennifer Beckstrand:

    “Is he dead? Please tell me he’s not dead!”

  4. Happy Friday!

    On my blog I’m sharing the first line from Underestimating Miss Cecelia by Carolyn Miller: https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2019/07/18/first-line-friday-94/.

    Today, I’m currently reading The Spice King by Elizabeth Camden. It’s an excellent story that I highly recommend! I’m just starting chapter 34, so I’ll share from there.

    “Gray rarely took the time to read The Washington Post first thing in the morning.”

    Hope you have an excellent weekend!!! 😀❤📚

  5. I currently have this and The Hope of Azure Springs on my to-read pile – I’ve heard great things about both of them.

    I’m sharing the first line from Underestimating Miss Cecilia by Carolyn Miller on my blog today – it seems to be a popular choice!

    I’m currently reading Fatal Strike by DiAnn Mills. Here’s the first line:

    Special Agent Leah Riesel scanned the headlines on her phone.

    That’s a little underwhelming, but the first chapter includes a shoot-out in a hostage situation, so it ramps up the action quickly.

    Happy reading!

  6. I loved this book too!
    Today on my blog I shared the first line from Storm Rising by Ronie Kendig but I’m currently reading Fragments of Fear by Carrie Stuart Parks so I’ll share the first line from my current chapter (8) here: “Marley was sitting by the door in the living room when Travis returned.” Hope you have a great weekend with plenty of reading time! 🙂

  7. An intriguing opening! I’m sharing on my blog the first line from At First Spark by Liwen Y. Ho.

    Darren Spark never imagined that one person could make him feel so happy and sad all at the same time.

  8. My first line is from The Crossing of Cypress Creek by Pam Hillman
    Natchez Under-the-Hill on the Mississippi River, August 1792
    Caleb O’Shea jerked awake to utter stillness.

    Great series!

    Just won Thomas. Can’t wait to read it!
