What are you reading this week? Open the book nearest you and share the first line with me!

Today I’m featuring a book patiently waiting on my To Be Read list:  A Lasting Impression by Tamera Alexander.

A Lasting Impression cover image

FRENCH QUARTER, NEW ORLEANS,
LOUISIANA
SEPTEMBER 1, 1866
Claire Laurent studied the finished canvas on the easel before her, and though masterpiece hardly described it, she knew the painting was her best yet.

This novel has an interesting preface written by the author explaining how there are bits of actual history woven throughout the mostly fictional novel. I am looking forward to reading it as it creeps closer to the top of my TBR list.

Now it’s your turn! Grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first line!

  1. Happy Friday! My first line is: “For a moment she couldn’t breathe, and then the barest whisper passed her lips – half spontaneous praise half simple awe. ‘Oh my… I’ve found Paradise!’ ” From Spring Raine by Delia Latham

  2. HE IS WORTHY

    Honor the Lord you heavenly beings: honor the Lord for his glory and strength. Honor the Lord for the glory of his name. Worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness. Psalm 29:1-2

    I HAVE FLOWN A LOT OF MILES in the past twenty years, so not surprisingly, I take many things about the experience for granted. From Worship Changes Everything by Darlene Zschech

    1. Yes, it is intriguing and I will tell you the next line mentions something about her still feeling disappointed despite the quality of her work. Then the rest of the paragraph left me going, “ooooo.” It’s very intriguing and I had to make myself stop reading because I have other books I have promised to read first, but I am eager to read this one soon!

  3. Sounds interesting! Historical fiction is my favorite genre.

    This week, though, I featured a children’s book. 🙂
    “Good morning, Lord, it’s time to rise.
    The sun is shining bright.
    I’ve got my day ahead of me.
    Please help me do what’s right.”
