First Line Friday (week 142): The Cautious Maiden

Posted April 19, 2019 by meezcarrie in Christian, Dawn Crandall, First Line Fridays, historical / 14 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 joined us for the Christian Fiction Readers Retreat earlier this month.

The book I’m featuring today is The Cautious Maiden by Dawn Crandall, one of our CFRR2019 authors! The hero in this book – Vance Eversstone – is one of my top 5 book boyfriends, by the way, and his redemption story is so appropriate for this Good Friday…

And the first line is …

“Hey Vi! You got a minute?”

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

    The knife had pierced Seth Halloran’s heart, exactly at the spot that would stop it cold. Poor guy would’ve dropped right where he stood.

      That’s an interesting read! What do you think of it?

    “I first of Antonia on what seemed to be an interminable journey across the great midland plain of North America.”
    My Antonia by Willa Cather
    (reading this classic for book club)

  3. Happy Friday, Carrie! I’m sharing from my current read, Spring Magic by D.E. Stevenson. This is the first line from Chapter 18:

    “This was the day upon which Frances had been invited to take tea at the Castle, and, as always, there were half a dozen people ready and willing to advise her how to attain her objective.”

    Have a wonderful Easter weekend!

  4. Happy Friday!

    This week on my blog I am sharing the first few lines from All Made Up by Kara Isaac. It’s such a fantastic novel. I highly recommend it. You can go to my post by clicking the link: Currently, I am reading Weddings, Willows, and Revised Expectations by V. Joy Palmer. It’s really good. I’m on chapter seven, so I will share a line from there.

    “Don’t see me. Don’t see me. Don’t see me. ‘Courtney!’ Walk faster. Walk faster. Walk faster. ‘Courtney!’ Dallas yelled. ‘Please! We need to talk.’”

    Hope you have a blessed Easter weekend. Happy reading! ?❤️?

    Unified by Senator Tim Scott & Congressman Trey Gowdy.

    “June 17, 2015, a day that would become a turning point in our nation’s history, began as a typical summer day.”

    (my note: Tim is referring to the shooting in Charleston, SC at Mother Emmanuel Church where eight people were shot during a Bible Study on Wednesday evening).

  6. The Cautious Maiden one is sitting on my shelf mocking my lack of reading time. But I WILL get to it soon! 🙂

    I’m sharing the first line from Elizabeth Camden’s A Daring Venture over on my blog, but in honor of this being Good Friday, I thought I’d share a few verses that have been on my heart lately – John 15:12-14.

    My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command.

    Have a great weekend! My first line is from “All for the Cause” by Gail Kittleson:

    “What do you say, Lilly?”

  8. This is the first line of Battle for the Throne by E. J. Willis. Chapter 1, The White Wolf. Alaina jabbed a pitchfork into a pile of hay, pulled out a small mound, and carried it to the horse paddock.

    My voice cracked as I looked out into the packed auditorium and tried to gather my thoughts.
