Welcome to First Line Fridays! The day we grab the book closest to us and share the first line. Join the fun and discover your next read!

This week I am sharing the first line from a book on my TBR: Teach Me to Love by Kari Trumbo.

Teach Me to Love

Here’s the first line:

Tinton, South Dakota
May 1899

It wasn’t right to pray he would just die.


Izzy Lawson has taken her last abuse.
When her husband dies, she has a choice to make: go home and face the family who made her stay with the beast, or head to Belle Fourche to the only friend she has left. The reserve she’s worked so hard to build crumbles in the verdant rolling hills, can she find a second chance at love in the arms of a man so different from her husband?

Conrad Oleson can’t read, and it’s shamed him for longer than he can remember.
When another teacher shows up on his front step, he’s sure his brother is meddling again. But when Izzy reveals her painful past, he can’t stay away. It’s as if fate has stepped in and created a soulmate just for him. If learning to read brings him closer to her, he’ll do about anything to make that happen. Including, teaching her how to love.

Don’t miss this sweet, western, cowboy romance. This book was originally published in the Timeless Love: Romantic Stories That Span the Ages collection.
