Welcome to First Line Friday! Each Friday I pick a book and share the first line with you. In return, I hope you’ll share with me a first line from whatever book you have at hand!
Today I’m sharing the first line from the recently released, All My Tomorrows which includes three novellas written by Karen Witemeyer, Jody Hedlund, and Elizabeth Camden.
Here are the first lines from Karen Witemeyer’s contribution to the collection, Worth the Wait:
OCTOBER 1894 – HARPER’S STATION
BAYLOR COUNTY, TEXAS
“Are you sure it’s safe?” Victoria Adams stared down at her exposed right leg as her friend Grace Mallory fit the Remington Model 95 over-under double-barreled derringer in the small holster affixed to her garter.
Readers will take a journey across America and through time in this collection of three novellas from some of Christian fiction’s top historical romance writers. Originally released only as ebooks, these novellas–deeply moving and deeply romantic–now find print for the first time. The collection includes:
Karen Witemeyer’s “Worth the Wait” takes readers to the Harper’s Station women’s colony where a young mother must overcome pains and fears of the past in order to trust again.
Jody Hedlund’s “An Awakened Heart” follows a young woman into the shadows of New York’s tenements where she and a newly appointed minister spar over the best way to care for the poor and orphaned.
Elizabeth Camden’s “Toward the Sunrise” finds a young female medical student trying to overcome the ramifications of a decision that leave her at the mercy of a stubborn but handsome attorney.
Now it’s your turn to grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first (or your favorite) line!
