Welcome to First Line Friday!
Today I’m featuring
Of Horse and Rider by Ann Elizabeth Fryer.
Plans overheard, a bargain to devise…but is it playing with fire?
In 1849 Mercer County, Kentucky, beautiful Clara Stanton loses her sight, freedom, and fiance after a horse-riding accident. In the throes of her desperation, her family leaves her to recover while they travel to England without her.
New minister Daniel Merrick, weary from scandal, is unwittingly led by blind Clara into the most important mission of his life. But will she dare to soar beyond the limits those around her deem safe?
[Graphic Text]: Harrodsburg, Kentucky, Autumn, 1849 – Clara Stanton sank her teeth into a bright, apron-shined apple.

My book is The Heart of a Cowboy by Jody Hedlund:
She was going to drown. The Neosho River wrapped its cold fingers around Linnea Newberry and pulled her down.
I enjoyed that story! And hope you will too!
Grace Miller stepped cautiously across the lopsided porch of the old cabin, a deep sense of doom hanging over her small shoulders like a dark cloud.-from Christmas Grace by Mindy Steele
I love that opening line! Enjoy the book!
I’m currently in the middle of Celebration at Christmas Cove by Carrie Jansen so I will share a line from there. “When Celeste approached main street and noticed the long line of vehicles, including two shuttle buses, parallel parked all the way down the road, she thought, I must be the only person on the island not at the center yet.”
Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Happy reading!
Oo, a Christmas book! Love Christmas stories. 🙂 Enjoy and Happy Weekend!
