Posted June 20, 2024 by meezcarrie in Amanda Barratt, Christian, First Line Fridays, historical / 8 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 delighted to feature the first line of The Warsaw Sisters by Amanda Barratt! Amanda is so sweet and her books are always amazing, so I’m beyond excited to hang out with her again at this year’s JustRead Rendezvous! This author/reader event will take place in the Chicago area on Friday, November 15th. More details below – I’d love to see you there!


The Warsaw Sisters by Amanda Barratt

and the first line (and a couple more) of The Warsaw Sisters is

Antonina-and-Helena.

That was how I remembered our names. Spoken in a single breath, always blended together.


When Antonina’s beloved Marek is forced behind ghetto walls along with the rest of Warsaw’s Jewish population, Antonina turns her worry into action and becomes a key figure in a daring network of women risking their lives to shelter Jewish children. Helena finds herself drawn into the ranks of Poland’s secret army, joining the fight to free her homeland from occupation. But the secrets both are forced to keep threaten to tear the sisters apart–and the cost of resistance proves greater than either ever imagined.

Shining a light on the oft-forgotten history of Poland during WWII and inspired by true stories of ordinary individuals who fought to preserve freedom and humanity in the darkest of times, The Warsaw Sisters is a richly rendered portrait of courage, sacrifice, and the resilience of our deepest ties.

    My eyes flutter open, from murky to gray to light and back to gray, like the shutter on a camera taking pictures in the dark.

  2. Happy Friday!
    I’m currently reading For a Lifetime by Gabrielle Meyer. It is SO good!
    “It wasn’t quite midnight as I walked through the door of the stylish Hotel Victoria in the heart of the theater district with both excitement and trepidation.”
    I hope you have an excellent weekend filled with relaxing reading time. 🙂❤️📚

    Once again, the Troyer homestead looked pristine and bare compared to its brightly lit and festooned neighbors’ home just outside of Wooster.
