The Lines Between Us by Amy Lynn Green.

Since the attack on Pearl Harbor, Gordon Hooper and his buddy Jack Armitage have done “work of national importance” in the West as conscientious objectors: volunteering as smokejumpers, parachuting into and fighting raging wildfires. But the number of winter blazes they’re called to in early 1945 seems suspiciously high, and when an accident leaves Jack badly injured, Gordon realizes the facts don’t add up.

A member of the Women’s Army Corps, Dorie Armitage has long been ashamed of her brother’s pacificism, but she’s shocked by news of his accident. Determined to find out why he was harmed, she arrives at the national forest under the guise of conducting an army report…and finds herself forced to work with Gordon. He believes it’s wrong to lie; she’s willing to do whatever it takes so justice will be done.

As they search for clues, Gordon and Dorie must wrestle with their convictions about war and peace and decide what to do with the shocking secrets they discover.

  1. I’m currently reading The Girl in the Painting by Tea Cooper. It’s really good! Highly recommend it. I’m just beginning chapter 18, so I’ll share the first line from there.
    “Elizabeth rested her shoulder against the doorjamb, raising her hand and waving at the shouted greetings of the children as they paraded down the road.”
    Happy reading! 🙂❤📚

  2. We are reading the same book 🙂 I don’t think that has happened before! I need to learn how to make the cute little graphics. What program do you use? Have a great weekend!

  3. I finished The Lines Between Us last week! Great book!
    My first line is from a wonderful book by Joanna Politano: A Midnight Dance.

    He was so very BLUE. That was all my scattered mind could gather as he sailed past the window of Craven Street Theatre. Blue and sparkling under the glow of street lamps that shone down the alley.
