Posted February 8, 2019 by meezcarrie in Christian, First Line Fridays, historical, Kimberley Woodhouse, romance / 11 Comments

Happy Friday!

And welcome to First Line Fridays, hosted by Hoarding Books!!!

Since it’s Friday, it’s time to grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first line.

I’m continuing my #CFRR2019 FLF series, spotlighting books from the authors who will be joining us for the Christian Fiction Readers Retreat in April 2019!

The book I’m featuring today is The Patriot Bride by Kimberley Woodhouse, one of our CFRR2019 authors!

And the first line is …

Monday, May 11, 1752
Across the Rappahannock River
from Fredericksburg, Virginia

Ten-year-old Faith Lytton placed her hands on her hips – like Mama did when she was exasperated – and looked at the sad little group of puny troops allotted to her.

Let me know the first line of the book closest to you & then head over to Hoarding Books to see who else is participating!

  1. CFRR 2019. *sigh* But look out CFRR 2020!

    I’m featuring Allison Pittman’s “The Seamstress” on my blog this week, and since I’ve just begun chapter 20, I’ll share that first line here:

    “It was a hunger like she’d never known.”

    Have a great weekend!

  2. Kay Garrett

    “So then I got all confused. Agnes Zook waved her hands through the air as she tried to describe to her captive, green audience what had happened.

    THE AMISH CANDY MAKER by Laura V. Hilton

  3. This is such a fantastic story! I’ve enjoyed all the books in the Daughters of the Mayflower collection. Have a wonderful weekend, Carrie!

  4. Gloria

    The cold wind bit into my bare cheeks and the tip of my nose as I ran down the snow-covered path like I was being pursued by a pack of wolves.

    From Murders and Metaphors by Amanda Flower

    (This is not Christian fiction but a fun mystery)

    Happy Friday! My first line is from “Falling for Grace” by Janet W. Ferguson:

    “It was finally over.”

  6. I loved that one! I’ve really enjoyed the whole series in general too. I hope they decide to add more again! 🙂

    Today on my blog I shared the first line from American Omens by Travis Thrasher but it’s also my current read so I’ll share the first line from my current chapter (8) here: “‘I believe.’ Dowland said with all the conviction and soul he could muster.” Hope you have a wonderful weekend with plenty of quality reading time! 🙂

  7. This is such a good series from Barbour! I’m sharing the first line from Death in the Stocks by Georgette Heyer on my blog today. Here’s the second line:

    “No lamp shone in the window but a full moon sailed in a sky the colour of sapphires, and lit the village with a pale light, as cold as the sheen on steel.”

    Happy Friday!

  8. Paula Shreckhise

    My first lines are from A Return of Devotion by Kristi Hunter

    Marlborough, England. 1816

    She should have been prepared. After all, she’d had two months to imagine this moment. In truth she’d done little else besides imagine all the possible scenarios, each one worse than the last.
    But she hadn’t imagined this.
