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 Melissa Jagear’s latest release and the third book in her Teaville Moral Society series, A Chance at Forever.
Here are the first lines:
“I wish you luck, George.”
“It’s Aaron now. Don’t forget.”
Intriguing, don’t you think? I’m currently reading the second book in this series, A Love So True . I can’t wait to get to this third book and find out what that intro is all about.
In early 1900s Kansas, Mercy McClain, determined to protect Teaville’s children from the bullying she experienced as a child, finds fulfillment working at the local orphanage and serving on the school board. When Aaron Firebrook, the classmate who bothered her more than any other, petitions the board for a teaching position, she’s dead set against him getting the job.
Aaron knows he deserves every bit of Mercy’s mistrust, but he’s returned to his hometown a changed man and is seeking to earn forgiveness of those he wronged. He doesn’t expect Mercy to like him, but surely he can prove he now has the best interests of the children at heart.
Will resentment and old wounds hold them back, or can Mercy and Aaron put the past behind them in time to face the unexpected threats to everything they’re working for?
Now it’s your turn to grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first (or your favorite) line!
