Welcome to First Line Friday’s hosted by Hoarding Books.
Today I’m featuring A Daring Escape by Tricia Goyer. This page-turning World War 2 story is set primarily in Czechoslovakia. Watch for my review coming soon. I’m going to share with you the first line from the Prologue!
Ustin, Czech Republic
September 20, 1993
Condensation dripped from stone-hewn walls as Charles lowered himself down into the dry well, seeking the treasure his grandfather had tucked away just days before the Allies sacrificed the Sudetenland to Hitler’s death squad like a lamb to the slaughter. The rock walls and the earthy, wet smell reminded him of medieval dungeons and secret tunnels he had read about as a child, and of tales of adventures hunting treasure.
Ok, you caught me. I gave you two delicious lines. I couldn’t help myself!
What do you think? Will Charles find the treasure that his grandfather tucked away?
Now it’s your turn!
