Welcome to First Line Friday’s hosted by Hoarding Books.
Today I’m happy to be featuring The Liberty Bride (The Daughters of the Mayflower) by MaryLu Tyndall. With lively, dynamic characters, and a fun story plot of spies and secrets, I was eagerly along for a fun adventure both on the sea and on land! CLICK HERE to read my full review.
The Atlantic Ocean off the Cost of Virginia,
August 6, 1814
What would it feel like to drown…to float listlessly down…down…beneath the chilled waters of the Atlantic? To feel salty fingers wrap around you, their deadly talons tugging you farther into the murky darkness, your lungs burning until they screamed for air that would never come…until finally, cloaked in a silent, peaceful tomb, you floated into eternity…
Emeline Baratt pondered these things as she gazed upon the dark waves from the larboard railing of her father’s merchant brig — or rather, privateer — Charlotte.
Yes, I shared a little extra today! It still leaves questions… Is there a storm brewing? What happens next? Does Emeline end up in the ocean?
The Liberty Bride is scheduled to release on December 1st. But good news, you can pre-order your copy today!
