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 Until June by Barbara M. Britton! I’m excited that Barbara is one of the participating authors at the inaugural JustRead Rendezvous reader event in November – have you registered yet?!?

Until June by Barbara M. Britton

and the first line is…

Josephine Nimetz slipped into a perfect replica of a wool coat, one she had drawn, designed, and patterned on old newspaper

When seventeen-year-old seamstress, Josephine Nimetz, agrees to take care of a WWI amputee in a remote Alaskan lodge, there’s enough friction to melt the Mendenhall Glacier. Her position is only until June, and it pays well enough to overlook the hardship of managing a rustic home and a shell-shocked veteran.

Geoff Chambers makes it clear that he isn’t too fond of the “runt” sent to take care of his needs, nor of her painful mistakes. Dealing with a depressed and addicted veteran, pushes Josephine to the brink of leaving, if not for the money her salary brings.

But Josephine is a perfectionist, determined to get Geoff back on his feet—figuratively … Although, sending a rich, handsome veteran back into society may cost Josephine the man she has grown to love.

    The police report burned in Detective Cassidy Bowman’s hand. Accidental death due to drunk driving. No way.

    This book sounds interesting. I am reading Lost and Found by Suzanne Woods Fisher. The first line:
    The horse knew the way to the Bent N’ Dent store so well that David Stoltzfus only had to hold the buggy reins loosely in his hand, his mind free to wander on tis warm August morning.

  3. I‘m reading Finder by Suzanne Parker. First line:
    Above the airlock, in at least twenty different human and non-human languages, a faded sign read, Management Not Responsible For Losses Due to Depressurization or Alien Interference.

  4. The nearest one to me is Our Environment: How we adapt ourselves to it, Book 2. by: Harry Carpenter and George Wood.

    The first line is: “Learning is a continuous process.”

    It really is though!
