Don’t you just love discovering new books? For today’s First Line Friday I’m featuring Courting Miss Amsel by Kim Vogel Sawyer.

Courting Miss Amsel cover

I just finished listening to this one on Audible and will be sharing my review in my quarterly newsletter so be sure to sign up. I didn’t want to stop at the first line today so here’s the first paragraph (or two):

Walnut Hill, Nebraska
September 1882

     This certainly isn’t the way I imagined it.

Standing on the raised planked platform with her name – Miss Amsel – chalked in the flowing script across the center of the black-painted board behind her, Edythe searched the somber faces for any small sign of enthusiasm. Row upon row of unsmiling lips and apprehensive eyes greeted her. Her stomach trembled.
