I loved that book! Can't wait to check out the blog hop!

My first line today comes from Karen Sargent's 'Waiting For Butterflies':

"Maggie heard the key in the front door and looked at the clock on the nightstand: 1:48 a.m. Nearly twenty four hours had passed since the phone had jarred her awake and Sam out of bed."

"She hated Florida but loved her husband."
First line from “With This Peace” by Karen Campbell Prough.
It is the third book in the series that tells the story of Ella Dessa.
Gritty, real, tragic

Hi Rachel!
I have this on my kindle. Have a great weekend!

Kathleen Denly said...

She sounds very intimidated/overwhelmed, but courageous. That's a good start for any heroine's story.

Here's mine:

A Most Inconvenient Marriage by Regina Jennings

February 1865
Gratiot Street Prison
St. Louis, Missouri

“First, you’re going to write a good-bye letter to my sweetheart, and then you’re going to marry me.”

I love the title! Of course, I am thinking of Oxford, England. :) On a random note, while I was studying in Oxford, England, my professor was leaving my university to go and teach in Oxford, Mississippi. :)

Oxford, England to Oxford, Mississippi... quite a difference, but both beautiful! Small world! So wonderful that you studied in Oxford. Well, I did, too, but the other one, ha!
