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!
Today I’m sharing the first line from Depending On You by Melissa Jagears, which just released!
Here is the first line:
He hadn’t expected a hero’s welcome home, but neither had he anticipated a deserted street.
Can the joy and hope of Christmas restore their love before it’s too late?
Leah Whitsett’s life was ideal until the disastrous day she nearly died because of her husband’s deceit. When he returns home weeks before Christmas, she knows the best gift she can give him is forgiveness, but how can she relinquish her hard-won independence knowing he plans to turn their family’s life upside down again?
Bryant has always known his wife was a gift he’d never deserved, but how can he provide for her in a town that no longer wants anything to do with him? He longs to atone for the misery he’s put his loved ones through, but when he brings a family member home for the holidays, he and Leah may end up even further apart.
With emotions high and their marriage at stake, will the season bring the hope they need…or are their rifts too large to mend?
