Welcome to First Line Friday! Today we’re looking at A Castaway in Cornwall by Julie Klassen.
North Cornwall, England
Flotsam or jetsam?
According to the heavy old volume of Dr. Johnson’s Dictionary in my uncle’s study, flotsam is any goods floating on the sea where a ship has sunk or been cast away, while jetsam is anything purposefully cast out of a ship when in danger, in hopes of saving it, or at least lightening the load.

Would love to read Castaway!
Just got this in the mail yesterday!
Courting Misfortune by Regina Jennings:
“You want me to work for Jinxy Seaton? Calista York dropped her handbag onto her desk and reached up to remove her hatpin from her heavy swirl of brown curls.
Ooo! Courting Misfortune is in my tbr list! I can’t wait to read it!
Happy Friday! My first line is from “Amish Assassin” by Ashley Emma:
“What was that? Anna Herschberger stopped walking and looked around the parking lot, reaching for her pepper spray.”
I loved this story! Klassen is awesome. 🙂
Over on my blog I’m sharing the first line from Thawing the Viscount’s Heart by Mindy Strunk: https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2020/12/11/first-line-friday-165/. It’s a really sweet read. Currently I’m reading Night Vision by Susan Sleeman, so I’ll share a line from there.
“Jenna woke in the middle of the night to the sound of the wind buffeting the cabin.”
Hope you have a wonderful, relaxing weekend! 🙂❤📚
Oh I love Susan Sleeman’s books! And Brendan is one of my favorite of the Byrd brothers so far. I just started an ARC of her next Nighthawk Security book and it’s so good! 😊
So cool! I hope you are loving the ARC. 🙂 It’s a great series so far.
I am! And I quite agree, really loving this series. 😊
