Hi Everyone! It’s First Line Friday, so grab a book near you and share your first line in the comments below!

Today I’m sharing the first line from Engraved on the Heart by Tara Johnson. A stunning debut novel which I absolutely loved reading! Plus, isn’t the cover just gorgeous?

Engraved on the Heart

Here is the first line:

April 12, 1861
Savannah, Georgia

Don’t fail. Tonight of all nights, don’t fail. 

about-the-book-2

Reluctant debutante Keziah Montgomery lives beneath the weighty expectations of her staunch Confederate family, forced to keep her epilepsy secret for fear of a scandal. As the tensions of the Civil War arrive on their doorstep in Savannah, Keziah sees little cause for balls and courting. Despite her discomfort, she cannot imagine an escape from her familial confines―until her old schoolmate Micah shows her a life-changing truth that sets her feet on a new path . . . as a conductor in the Underground Railroad.

Dr. Micah Greyson never hesitates to answer the call of duty, no matter how dangerous, until the enchanting Keziah walks back into his life and turns his well-ordered plans upside down. Torn between the life he has always known in Savannah and the fight for abolition, Micah struggles to discern God’s plan amid such turbulent times.

Battling an angry fiancé, a war-tattered brother, bounty hunters, and their own personal demons, Keziah and Micah must decide if true love is worth the price . . . and if they are strong enough to survive the unyielding pain of war.

  1. Happy Friday! I’m currently reading The Merry Lives of Spinsters by Rebecca Connolly. I love regency romances and this one is very well done. I will share the first line from Chapter Eleven, which I’m about to begin. “Being profoundly labeled a spinster by all who knew her didn’t preclude Georgie from deriving pleasure from certain things just as she had when she was first out.” I wish you a wonderful weekend.

  2. Oh, this was a wonderful debut!

    Here’s what I’m reading:

    “Liz Foster collapsed against the couch cushions and buried her hot face in a decorative pillow.” -A Picture Perfect Christmas by Candee Fick

    Have a fantastic weekend!

  3. Sounds like a great book!

    I’m featuring Just Let Go by Courtney Walsh: He shouldn’t be here. A diner in some little tourist town in Michigan was no place for Grady Benson, but here he was.

    Have a great weekend!

  4. I have this book. Now, I need time to read it. 😀

    Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog I’m sharing the first lines from All Things New by June Foster. I’m at the 25% mark, so I’ll just share a couple lines from there:

    “Though Jett wanted to see how the labor progressed, the medical conditions had change. Jillian had to bring the baby into the world now.”

    Kind of intense! 😮

    Hope you have a great weekend filled with excellent reading time.

  5. That one is on my TBR!
    Happy Friday!
    This week on my blog I shared A Light on the Hill by Connilyn Cossette but I’m currently reading Tell Her No Lies by Kelly Irvin so I’ll share the first line from the current chapter (8) that I’m on: “Upstanding citizens of the community did not lead double lives.” It’s not an easy book to put down! Hope you have a great weekend with plenty of quality reading time!

  6. That is a pretty cover! I’m sharing from A Season of Grace by Lauraine Snelling on my blog. Here’s the first line from a book I treated myself to this week, His Promise by Shelley Shepard Gray:

    “It’s snowing again,” Grace King said to Snooze. “If it keeps up, we’re gonna have a white Christmas. Won’t that be something?”

    Have a wonderful weekend!
