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. Today on First Line Friday, I’m featuring Five Brides by Eva Marie Everson, one of our CFRR2019 authors!
And the first line of the Prologue is…
The phone on the hotel’s bedside table rang, startling Julie Boland from her near-nap.
One dress, five women, a lifetime of memories.
Five single, fiercely independent women live together in a Chicago apartment in the early 1950s but rarely see one another. One Saturday afternoon, as they are serendipitously together downtown, they spy a wedding dress in a storefront window at the famous Carson, Pirie, Scott & Co. After trying it on—much to the dismay of the salesclerk and without a single boyfriend or date between the five of them—they decide to pool their money to purchase it.
Can one dress forever connect five women who live together only a short time before taking their own journeys to love and whatever comes happily ever after?
