Happy Friday (and happy September!) & 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 Of Hearts and Home by Ann Elizabeth Fryer! I’m excited that Ann is one of the participating authors at the inaugural JustRead Rendezvous reader event in November (more details below)!
and the first line is…
Gentle winds spilled around Leah that morning, and the sun showed no sign of dimming behind the clouds.
When Hugo Davidson is offered the chance to help a school in the cozy community of Crab Orchard, Kentucky, he has no idea that his arrival may upset the one-room teacher’s living and risk his carefully mended heart.
Leah Waters, jilted by her fiance six years prior, has carved out a respectable existence. But when a British educator moves to town, she instantly closes her heart to possibilities and her mother’s match-making shenanigans. But at what cost? Can she reconcile her growing feelings and love again? Or will the school board’s plans derail everything?
Perfect for fans of Jane Austen and Anne of Green Gables.
