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 To Stand in the Breach by Danielle Grandinetti! I’ve gotten to know Danielle since she’s been a host for JustRead Tours & also an author whose books we’ve toured, and she’s just delightful! So I’m super excited that she is one of the participating authors at the inaugural JustRead Rendezvous reader event in November. Only a month left to register – are you coming??!! I can’t wait to see you!
and the first line is…
He found her.
In this page-turning tale of loyalty and danger, visit small-town Wisconsin during the Dairy Strikes of the Great Depression. A sibling’s-best-friend inspirational romance.
She came to America to escape a workhouse prison, but will the cost of freedom be too high a price to pay?
1933, Wisconsin — Large animal veterinarian Katy Wells takes her patients’ welfare personally, so it’s no surprise when she stands up to angry farmers planning a milk strike or takes in an injured draft horse to save its life.
But after a visitor from the past discovers her location and reveals a threat, she must choose between her work and her freedom, and whether to trust a man to keep her safe.
