Welcome to First Line Friday!
Today I’m featuring

Of Hearts and Home by Ann Elizabeth Fryer.

When Hugo Davidson is offered the chance to help a school in the cozy community of Crab Orchard, Kentucky, he has no idea that his arrival may upset the one-room teacher’s living and risk his carefully mended heart.

Leah Waters, jilted by her fiance six years prior, has carved out a respectable existence. But when a British educator moves to town, she instantly closes her heart to possibilities and her mother’s match-making shenanigans. But at what cost? Can she reconcile her growing feelings and love again? Or will the school board’s plans derail everything?

From Goodreads

[Graphic Text]: Crab Orchard, Kentucky, October 16, 1899 — Gentle winds spilled around Leah that morning, and the sun showed no sign of dimming behind the clouds.

Now it’s your turn. Pull out the book beside you and tell us the first line.

  1. That looks so good!

    My first line is from The Debutante’s Code by Erica Vetsch
    “If you lean out any farther, you’ll end up in the drink.”

  2. Happy Friday!
    I’m currently in the middle of To Treasure an Heiress by Roseanna White. It’s SO good!
    “Mam came to a halt beside her, close enough that Senara could feel her there, feel the warmth of her. ‘Why,’ she said softly, ‘do I have the feeling that this upset isn’t only about Beth?'”
    Hope you have a great weekend. Happy reading!
