First Line Friday (week 300): A Feeling of Home

Posted July 28, 2022 by meezcarrie in Christian, First Line Fridays, historical, romance, Susan Anne Mason / 9 Comments

Happy Friday & welcome to the First Line Friday link-up! It’s time to grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first line. Today, I’m featuring the first line of A Feeling of Home by Susan Anne Mason. The “Redemption’s Light” series of historical fiction/romance has been so good – can’t wait to read this one too!

And WOW – 300 weeks of First Line Friday! Hooray!

and the first line is…

“I need to speak to Dr. Henshaw. It’s an emergency.”


Can she set aside the pain from the past to embrace a new love?

Isabelle Wardrop’s well-to-do life has completely unraveled. Within months, she’s lost both her parents, her fortune, and her home. With nowhere else to turn, she and her younger sister move in with a trusted former servant in an impoverished area of the city. Desperate for work but having no qualifications, Isabelle is forced to accept help from Dr. Mark Henshaw, the very man she blames for her mother’s death.

Mark Henshaw has admired Isabelle for several months, but after the tragic death of her mother, he vows to make amends for the past and help her find her way. But when Mark learns his younger brother has formed an undesirable friendship with Isabelle’s sister–one that brings a whole new set of problems into their lives–he doesn’t know if Isabelle will ever forgive him.

When startling developments begin to take place, both within Isabelle’s heart and their siblings’ relationship, her future looks very different than anything she could have imagined.

  4. Congrats on the 300 Fridays! I am needing some downtime these days and wanting reads with less violence/suspense and more laughter. So I just finished A Noble Masquerade by Christi Ann Hunter for the second time! First line: “It is never a happy day when an eight-year-old girl’s cheesecake lands in the dirt, and she certainly doesn’t take kindly to the laughing little boy who put it there.” Historical romance.

    I read Susan’s book. That was a great series!
    My first line is from The Secrets Between Them by Susie Dietze:
    Joel Morgan was not in the mood to be lied to.

  6. I’m looking forward to reading this book! I’m currently reading Deception by Patricia Bradley and the first line is: “Today was not a good day to die.” Have a great week!
