Welcome to First Line Friday!
Today I’m featuring
To Stand in the Breach by Danielle Grandinetti.
(yes, this is my novella!)
She came to America to escape a workhouse prison, but will the cost of freedom be too high a price to pay?
1933, Wisconsin—Large animal veterinarian Katy Wells takes her patients’ welfare personally, so it’s no surprise when she stands up to angry farmers planning a milk strike or takes in an injured draft horse to save its life.But after a visitor from the past discovers her location and reveals a threat, she must choose between her work and her freedom, and whether to trust a man to keep her safe.
To Stand in the Breach is the prequel novella to A Strike to the Heart, releasing April 2022 from Heritage Beacon Fiction/Iron Stream Media.
[Graphic Text]: Monday, February 13, 1933 – He found her.
